Sessions - WindEurope Annual Event 2022 in Bilbao


Resource assessment: wakes and blockages

When: Wednesday, 6 April 2022, 16:15 - 17:45
Where: Luxua 2 - Level 3

Session description

This is the hottest topic in resource assessment. Wakes and blockages are a term which has evolved in the industry but its really the same thing, the interaction of a wind farm with the atmospheric boundary layer. CFD models tend not differentiate between the two effects and often model them as one whereas engineering models treat them separately and combine them by the method of superposition. In this session you will see both approaches along with real world experimental data.
