The objective of this paper is to analysis the wind farm properties in suburban environment by Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) simulations. In order to do the simulation of a suburban environment, geometry model was built and mesh was generated by commercial software GAMBIT®. Simulation was conducted by FLUENT®. Parallel computing technique was applied in simulation. Simulation results showed different kinds of wind properties such as path lines, velocity distributions, turbulence intensity, etc., and it is also indicated that parallel computing is an appropriate way to conduct wind farm simulation .
