In the spirit of track 4 wind turbine and wind plants, current topics of interest and existing problems will be discussed in this short session through talks by Dennice F. Gayme and Emmanuel Branlard. This track is described as encompassing wind energy systems at multiple scales. At blade scale: loads, aeroelasticity, airfoils, aerodynamics. At wind turbine scale: new turbine concepts, turbine design, very large wind turbines, horizontal axis turbines, vertical axis turbines. At wind plant scale: wakes, wake-wake interactions, controls, steering, model development, layout optimization are of interest.
