Opening remarks

Plenary session 1: Post-construction validation


We will start the session with an overview of how far we have come over the past decades, you will be amazed! We will then look at how well pre-construction estimate methods have done in the clear light of post construction data. Finally, we will hear about how analytics and condition monitoring can enhance each other.

Plenary session 2: Uncertainty


Uncertainty is an intrinsic aspect in both wind resources and site assessments. Understanding the different sources and contributions is key to mitigate and reduce associated risks. In this session, we will learn how different factors impact energy yield such us wind direction or the correlation of different uncertainty components. We will continue investigating how to deal with uncertainty when using synthetic time series or modelled power time series; and we will finalize exploring wind climate uncertainties and their relevance in loads assessments.
