Resource assessment  
Onshore     


Room: Montparnasse

Complex terrain poses a challenge for onshore wind farms in terms of uncertainty on the energy production and difficult to predict turbulence, shear and gusts. To solve these challenges researcher employ numerical modeling, physical modeling and conduct field experiments.

Session scope:

onshore wind energy only

Learning objectives

The delegates with be able to explain:

  • The importance of field experiments for model validation
  • The strength and limitation of physical flow modeling
  • The possibilities and drawbacks of numerical modelling
  • The possibilities with a completely new kind of wind modeling facility
This session will be chaired by:
Jakob Mann, Prof, Professor, DTU Wind Energy / President, EAWE, Denmark
