Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO168: Data Exchange in the Forthcoming IEC 61400-15-2 Standard

Mouhamet Diallo, Wind Expert, Tractebel


The new IEC 61400-15 wind energy standard will define a framework for assessment and reporting of the wind resource, energy yield and site suitability input. This standard is working to align language and definition of wind resource parameters and methods. This should yield improved comparability and reproducibility of results for financial stakeholders. This work represents the collaboration of a large collection of wind energy entities spanning all sectors of the industry and from across the globe. The authors wish to present to the audience an overview of recent work on this new standard, in particular relating to proposals for a DEF (digital exchange format) as well as a general status update and details of the forthcoming final document. Two standards documents are being released: site suitability document IEC 64100-15-1, which is available now, and the energy yield document IEC 61400-15-2, which is the subject of this presentation, which will follow imminently.[CJ1] The DEF builds on the standardisation developed for the written energy yield assessment report, using a hierarchical data model in the form of a JSON Schema to capture key report content in a form suitable for automated data exchange. This will allow energy yield assessment data to flow between different software systems at different organisations directly, removing the need to manually extract data from a written report document (e.g. key results tables). The DEF mainly focuses on report content that is typically presented in tables, and is complementary to the narrative of the energy yield assessment presented in the written report.
