Simultaneous nested modeling from the synoptic scale to the LES scale for wind energy applications

  title={Simultaneous nested modeling from the synoptic scale to the LES scale for wind energy applications},
  author={Tom Warner and Yuewei Liu and Claire L. Vincent and Weiwei Wu and Bill Mahoney and Scott Swerdlin and Keith Parks and Jennifer Boehnert},
This paper describes an advanced multi-scale weather modeling system, WRF–RTFDDA–LES, designed to simulate synoptic scale ( 2000 km) to smalland micro-scale ( 100 m) circulations of real weather in wind farms on simultaneous nested grids. This modeling system is built upon the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) community Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model. WRF has been enhanced with the NCAR Real-Time Four-Dimensional Data Assimilation (RTFDDA) capability. FDDA is an… CONTINUE READING
