Post-construction: getting the most of the wind resource

Resource assessment

When: Wednesday, 26 September 2018, 15:00 - 16:15
Where: Room: Bilbao

Session description

Your wind farm is now up and running and new challenges appear! In this session we will cover two aspects of wakes: optimal yawing strategies, and the detection of wakes. We will also look at how icing can be simulated and at the effects of icing on power production. Finally, we will look at the wind farm from the utility angle and study the forecasting of ramps using long-range LIDARs.

Learning objectives

• Aspects of operating your wind farm. • Understanding what wakes are, and how to measure them using LIDARs. • Understanding strategies for optimised yawing in waked situations. • Learn what icing is, how to simulate it and what the effects are on the production. • Understand what ramps are, and their effect, and how to forecast them.
