Power Fluctuations from Large Offshore Wind Farms

Project Details


The project has developed and verified simulation and prediction models for power fluctuations in large wind farms. The verification is based on ex-tensive measurements in the two large offshore wind farms in Denmark: Horns Rev and Nysted. The models can also be applied to simulation of wind power fluctuations from wind turbines distributed over a larger area than a wind farm. The advantage of the prediction models is that they can be applied in the operation, but these models require a training period be-fore they work in a new system. On the other hand, the simulation model can simulate power fluctuations with possible future wind power develop-ments, based on information about size and location of the individual wind turbines. Thus, the simulation model is a planning tool.
