16:30 - 18:00 How does the wind blow behind wind turbines and in wind farms?
Science & Research  

Room: Llevant

Session description

Wind turbines operate under highly fluctuating wind conditions. It is thus important to achieve a profound understanding of the characteristic features of the micro scale meteorological conditions. Current research activities focus not only on the inflow conditions and their impact on wind turbines, but also on the wake structures and the wind conditions within a wind farm.

Learning objectives

  • Get a better understanding micro scale wind conditions
  • Learn about new advanced measuring techniques
  • See the possibilities of numerical methods to simulate complex wind conditions
  • Learn about the impact of wind on turbine components
This session will be chaired by:
Joachim Peinke, Uni Oldenburg, Germany
Jakob Mann, DTU Wind Energy
