Jonathon Sumner’s research uses mathematical models to simulate air flow around wind turbines. He was awarded an FRQNT research grant for 2014-17 on “Simulation des écoulements atmosphériques dans un parc éolien afin d’évaluer sa performance et maximiser son rendement à partir des équations de Navier-Stokes”.
