The article summarize results of the study of wind farms located on the island of Crete and in Russia using different solvers of open source SOWFA library. Applying large-eddy simulation approach allows to take into account the orography of the area, different physical processes like lower-level jets and will assess the impact of the wind farm and turbulent wakes on the local microclimate of the region.
