What are comparison exercises?
As a service to its members and the community at large, WindEurope hosts comparison exercises that aim to provide the industry with better modelling methodologies and tools, providing an industry platform to share experience and move towards best practice.
WindEurope acts as a neutral platform and a facilitator by co-ordinating, hosting and promoting the exercises and organising events at which the results are presented. The exercises are organised on a non-commercial basis.
Since 2011, six exercises have been run on comparing resource assessment procedures (CREYAP), mesoscale models benchmarking and sound propagation (SPICE).
WindEurope would like to thank the partner organisations and participating teams for their significant input, without which these exercises would not be possible.
Recap of resource assessment comparison exercises at EWEA 2015
DTU’s Niels Gylling Mortensen looked back over all past CREYAP exercises and set out the way forward in “Comparison of Resource and Energy Yield Assessment Procedures 2011-15: what have we learned and what needs to be done?”
Bjarke Tobias Olsen gave a presentation on “Simulating wind energy resources with mesoscale models: Intercomparison of state-of-the-art models,” which drew on additional submissions for the mesoscale benchmarking exercise.
