This paper puts forward a creative turbine micro-siting scheme breaking the 3D-5D rule, and calculates wake losses, power production and its economic benefits in traditional wind farm micro-siting scheme and creative wind farm micro-siting scheme by evaluating software WEPAS and MWVE. Results show that the micro-siting scheme breaking 3D-5D is more feasible and effective. It not only ensures the safe and stable operation of the wind turbines and technical parameters, but also the power production and the initial investment have been optimized.
