Sessions - WindEurope Technology Workshop 2022
Resource Assessment & Analysis of Operating Wind Farms 2022
23-24 June • Brussels


Improve forecasting in different timescales

When: Thursday, 23 June 2022, 11:00 - 12:30
Where: Auditorium

Session description

Although it is a standard today to use forecasts of wind production to manage power systems with high wind penetration and to optimise market participation of wind farms, there are still situations where prediction errors are high and translate into technical and financial impacts for the operators. These impacts stimulate continuous research in the field worldwide. This session aims to present selected recent advances on very short term forecasting and ramps forecasting using SCADA data, and also on seasonal forecasting for the longer time scales. The session finally emphasises on the importance of focusing not only on the accuracy of the forecasts but also on the value they bring to the applications they are used for as input. To that direction, novel developments on the optimal use of forecasts for market participation and the provision of ancillary services will be presented.
