The main objective of IEA R&D Wind Annex XVII Database on Wind Characteristics has been to provide wind energy planners, designers and researchers, as well as the international wind engineering community in general, with a source of actual wind field data (time series and resource data) observed in a wide range of different wind climates and terrain types.(More)
Accurately quantifying wind turbine wakes is a key aspect of wind farm economics in large wind farms. This paper introduces a new simulation post-processing method to address the wind direction uncertainty present in the measurements of the Horns Rev offshore wind farm. This new technique replaces the traditional simulations performed with the 10 min(More)
Målinger af atmosfærisk turbulens afviger fra en Gaussisk proces, specielt hvad ang̊ar hastighedsændringer over sm̊a tidsskridt, hvor halerne p̊a sandsynlighedsfordelingen snarere er ekspotentielle end Gaussiske. Tælleprincipperne for ekstreme hændelser og eksistensen af kaskader af hændelser gennemg̊as. Empiriske ekstremstatistikker findes i(More)
Researchers within the International Energy Agency (IEA) Task 31: Wakebench have created a framework for the evaluation of wind farm flow models operating at the microscale level. The framework consists of a model evaluation protocol integrated with a web-based portal for model benchmarking (www.windbench.net). This paper provides an overview of the(More)
The IEA Task 31 Wakebench is setting up a framework for the evaluation of wind farm flow models operating at microscale level. The framework consists on a model evaluation protocol integrated on a web-based portal for model benchmarking (www.windbench.net). This paper provides an overview of the building-block validation approach applied to(More)
Large eddy simulations (LES) of wind farms have the capability to provide valuable and detailed information about the dynamics of wind turbine wakes. For this reason, their use within the wind energy research community is on the rise, spurring the development of new models and methods. This review surveys the most common schemes available to model the(More)
