Call for abstracts
Call for abstracts is closed
Outcome of the call for abstracts will be communicated early February. This edition of the workshops will bring together the experts of Analysis of Operating Wind Farms and Resource Assessment. Some sessions will also address strategy topics.
General Abstracts requirements – for all topics
- Innovative content: abstracts should contain new work, not yet published.
- No commercial content please: overtly commercial abstracts will be rejected.
- Contribution to industry knowledge: abstracts should strive to present data or results that can contribute to bringing the industry forward.
- The correct topic should be selected to ensure correct scoring. The content of the abstract must be topic related. It is the responsibility of the submitter to ensure that abstracts are submitted under the correct topic. The programme committee is aware that some of the topics and sub-topics might overlap with one and another, it will be taken into account when reviewing and during the build-up of the programme. In the meantime, please select the category that would be closer to your abstract.
- Abstract format: plain text (no tables, graphs, charts or images) around 500 words.
Resource Assessment Track
Topic 1: Uncertainty in data analysis and processing
- Uncertainty quantification – in individual WRA steps and propagation of uncertainties through the workflow.
- Time series modelling. What stops us from wider implementation of time series calculations as opposed to frequency based?
- Power performance verification (IEC61400-12-4)
Topic 2: Measurements including LiDARs
- Acceptance, validation, correction strategies
- Do we need to calibrate LiDARs against masts?
- Applications of scanning LiDARs: how can the wind industry best benefit from this technology?
- Turbulence intensity for offshore wind farms
- Icing loss assessment.
Topic 3: Improving simulations and modelling with regards to levels of uncertainty
- What are the limitations of our modelling knowledge and how can we improve?
Topic 4: Wakes & blockage
- Can wake steering improve production?
- Do we fully understand wake blockage?
- Intra wind farm wakes, are modelling them correctly?
- Are turbines with large rotors on short towers under-performing?
Topic 5: Wind Atlas
- What are the next stages?
Topic 6: Climate Change
- Do we fully understand the impact upon the resource?
Track on Analysis of Operating Wind Farms
Topic 1: Power curves assessment
- IEC61400-12-4, Site-specific power curves for pre-construction production estimate.
- Do we need them?
- Alternative techniques?
Topic 2: Modelling
- Advances in time series modelling.
- Post – pre construction reconciliation, are we getting it right?
Topic 3: Forecasting
- Seasonal and day ahead.
- What are the barriers to improving the accuracy of forecasts?
- Do upwind wind speed measurements improve accuracy?
- Are they needed for grid integration?
- For power trading do we need to know the demand, where is the industry?
Topic 4: Turbine LiDARs
- What can they be used for and the value proposition?
Topic 5: Noise
- Curtailment strategies
General and Strategy track
Topic 1: All about Data
- Open data and big data sources for both RA and AOWF.
- Big data and machine learning.
- Time series.
Topic 2: Wind projects business model decisions (including permitting issues)
- How does Resource Assessment change over the lifetime of a projects
- Analyses of Operating Wind Farms at the end of a project lifetime
- New studies, practical cases on methods and results
- Offshore operations: lowering the costs
- Owners maintenance strategy: OEM, ISP, Self Performing
- Reliability (proactive) maintenance in wind farms
