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!

PO177: Observations of the atmospheric flow integrating real climate conditions at offshore, coastal, high altitude, complex and tropical sites

Charlotte Bay Hasager, Professor, DTU


AIRE Project: Observations of the atmospheric flow at offshore, coastal, high altitude, complex and sub-tropical sites for integrating real climate conditions to enhance wind farm and wind turbine power production and increase components durability. The overall aim of the AIRE project is to enhance wind farm and wind turbine power production and increase component durability through integration of real climate conditions determined at a multitude of sites relevant for wind energy. One of the specific aims is to collect observations at offshore, coastal, high altitude, complex and sub-tropical sites in order to deliver the measurements necessary to progress beyond state of the art. In addition to wind observations, observations of precipitation and suspended dust potentially hitting the operating turbines and causing erosion at the leading edge of blades is included in the project HEU AIRE. The observation program started in January 2023. Data collection takes place at four experimental wind energy sites. These are Alaiz in complex terrain and Telde in an experimental offshore site in Spain, Levenmouth in Scotland, and Risø in Denmark at a coastal site. Furthermore, four commercial wind farms located at high altitude in France, Italy and Spain and one commercial offshore wind farm located in Scotland are part of the observation program. Wind observations from wind profiling lidars as well as nacelle-based wind lidar, tall meteorological masts and from SCADA data are collected depending on site. Precipitation is measured at some sites with Micro Rain Radar (MRR), disdrometers and rain gauges. At the subtropical site in the Canary Islands, the aerosol dust is also observed with an air quality sensor. The dust typically originates from Sahara at the African continent and his effect in the blades and turbine performance has not been sufficiently studied. Observation from the first full year will be analysed.
