At EMD, Aalborg we hosted a Vindkraftnet meeting on complex terrain. Participants gained updated knowledge about complex-terrain issues with presentations on models and terrain data, lidars, multipoint measurements, wakes, the Perdigao experiment, vertical extrapolation, reference wind data and finally updates on the new European wind atlas.
EMD had the pleasure of giving three presentations:
Models versus terrain data, what matters most.
Vertical Wind Speed Extrapolation in Complex Terrain – As Challenging as we think?
Reference wind data – Challenges when doing short measurement campaigns in complex terrain
About the network: Vindkraftnet is an open, knowledge sharing network for wind energy professionals, analysts and researchers. The network focus on wind resource assessment topics and has bi-annual meetings. Participants are coming from the industry and from research institutions.
