DNV GL (legacy GL Garrad Hassan) offers this one-day course on wind power performance. The course is supported by concise notes, practical examples and group discussions.
DNV GL has acted as the technical adviser for more than 40,000MW of operational wind projects, and assessed the energy yield of approximately 130,000MW. In undertaking these tasks, DNV GL has advised on more wind farm developments than any other company in the world.
Performance verification procedures and power curve warranties have to be defined and negotiated before the financial close of a wind farm project in order to minimise financial risk. The uncertainties of the power curve warranted by the manufacturer in relation to the wind farm site have to be quantified. During operation the verification test procedure has to prove that the turbines are within the acceptance levels. To compliment the warranties, the wind farm performance may be optimised and tracked through regular monitoring using tools that interrogate the SCADA data continuously recorded by each turbine and met mast on the wind farm. The course allows the attendees to benefit from DNV GL’s extensive experience of project due diligence and performance optimisation, and avoid common mistakes and misconceptions.
For those who would like to learn more about the design of wind farms we have developed a Wind Farm Design and WindFarmer course.
