Additional information
The course offers an introduction to the weather-related phenomena that affect a wind farm. This will cover the most important aspects of meteorology and wind power meteorology, including local effects, variations on different scales, “strange animals in the micro-scale zoo” like complex terrain, forestry, wind profiles, and thermally-driven winds. We will also cover a description of the atmospheric circulation, the structure of the atmosphere, and its various scales; typical large systems as the low pressure system, monsoons and hurricanes are described; and modelling of the atmosphere will be discussed. A question and answer session will close the day.

Course outline:

  • Why does the wind blow?
  • Structure of the atmosphere
  • Atmospheric variables
  • Atmosperic forces
  • Atmospheric scales
  • Atmosperic systems
  • Modelling the atmosphere
  • Climate change
  • Wind power meteorology
  • Distributions
  • Variation: diurnal, seasonal, inter-annual variation
  • Local effects: roughness, orography, obstacles
  • Strange animals in the zoo: complex terrain, forestry, wind profiles
  • Wind power meteorology, continued
  • Q & A session

Who should attend?
Wind resource analysts, project managers, developers, civil and structural designers, lenders, turbine designers and other professionals who wish to benefit from DNV GL’s technical and commercial knowledge of the meteorological aspects of wind power developments. DNV GL has assumed that attendees will have a technical background, but no specific meteorological knowledge is required.
