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!

PO207: Train2Wind - Lollex and other results

Gregor Giebel, Senior Scientist, DTU


TRAIN2WIND is a PhD TRAINing school analysing enTRAINment in offshore WIND farms with computer models and experiments. The 13 PhD students worked around the question of large offshore wind farms. A tool for that was the Lollex experiment, in Lolland, Denmark. We measured the wind flow in the RWE operated Rødsand II wind farm with several remote sensing devices. One lidar was placed on a fix platform and two lidars were mounted on a Crew Transfer Vessel (CTV). In addition, wind retrievals from satellite observations were made. In preparation, we used computer modelling (LES and WRF) to find the best measurement strategies. The initially planned Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) campaign of Lollex was moved to south-western Germany. Additionally, wind tunnel modelling, the analysis of a vertical axis turbine and of wind farm wake control complements the study of entrainment. The students are also the subject of an observation by a information science PhD student, establishing how an international collaboration works. The main work is done during the education of 18 fellows, where 13 embark on a PhD, while the other ones are employed for typically one year. The students are working with high-fidelity numerical simulations, lidars, unmanned aerial systems, wind tunnels and satellite data in order to understand entrainment of new momentum in very large wind farms.
