Project Details

Description

This project enables a large Danish participation in the IEA Wind Task 44: Farm Flow Control, focusing on the control strategies to mitigate the wake effects within wind farms. The purpose of the IEA Wind Task 44 is to coordinate international research in the field of wind farm flow control. Technology to be considered in this Task covers a broad range but primarily focuses on the control algorithms and strategies, and how they translate into real-world performance gains.
The scope is to gather ongoing research results as well as state-of-the-art in industrial practice, create an overview of control technologies and algorithms and explore how uncertainties affect the performance and potential for adoption of wind farm flow control.
The result is guidance for the wind industry and researchers on the current control algorithms, requirements, impediments to adoption, future directions and expected benefits of wind farm flow control.
