Resource assessment - part 2

Resource assessment

When: Wednesday, 3 April 2019, 14:00 - 15:30
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 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 and therefore it is vital they are thoroughly understood.

Invited speakers from outside the Resource Assessment community will present: the potential impacts of climate change on the wind resource; insights on measurements from the data user perspective; and how to improve annual energy production using operational data.

Part 2 will take the audience through a range of topics ranging from ice losses, wake modelling improvements, seasonal forecasting through to the impact of real world conditions on turbine performance.
