Resource assessment - part 1

Resource assessment

When: Wednesday, 3 April 2019, 10:45 - 12:15
Where: Luxua 2

Session description

The Resource Assessment programme will span across 3 sessions. Each will take the audience through a range of topics. These will include: ice losses, turbulence intensity measurements, wake and wind flow modelling improvements, seasonal forecasting, machine learning applications, and the impact of real world conditions on turbine performance. Each of these topics has the potential to have a profound impact upon the energy yield. It is vital they are thoroughly understood. In part 1, participants will hear about how to account for the impacts of climate change on the wind resource and its assessment, and learn about advance weather prediction technology, complex flow and wake modelling and measuring and 3D LiDAR scanning and applications.

Learning objectives

Attendees will gain an understanding of how to use available data to estimate potential climate change impact in wind energy estimations; Attendees will also learn how technology allows to use powerful wind flow models like LES to improve; Attendees will learn how Lidars can be used to validate wind flow techniques to get maximum value from Lidar measurements, including Turbulence Intensity. Attendees will learn about the importance and challenges of validatiing wake models.
