The project will investigate the modelling of atmospheric behaviour and interaction between wind and turbine at the level of an individual turbine.

The objective of this project is to cost effectively reduce the amount of reserve required to cover wind forecast error.

  • A final report describing prediction methodology and level of accuracy improvement achieved.

  • Costs benefits evaluation of different degrees of modelling detail and associated reduction in forecast error.

  • Modelling source code,
