11:15 - 12:45 Optimising measurement strategies to maximise project value: Is the industry making false economies at the expense of project value?
Striking the right balance between costs and benefits when designing a measurement campaign has always been a challenge. Nowadays the situation is more complex due to:
- sophisticated instrumentation options (and their limitations);
- wind farms of larger spatial extent located in more diverse climates;
- advanced flow modelling.
It is no longer a straightforward process deciding on the optimal measurement strategy to minimise uncertainties in the energy assessment for a specific project. Assessing the resulting financial benefit is just as challenging. The interpretation of the data for site classification and thus choice of turbine has also become more complex.
- Evaluate the most efficient use of instrumentation for a specific site
- Understand and quantify the connection between measurement uncertainty and project economics and loads
- Make a more accurate choice of turbine type
- Express uncertainty variations across the site as the basis for cost-efficient measurement campaigns
