EERA-DTOC (2012-2015)

EERA-DTOC Design Tool for Offshore Wind Farm Cluster. The concept of the EERA-DTOC project is to combine this expertise in a common integrated software tool for the optimized design of offshore wind farms and wind farm clusters acting as wind power plants. The design tool includes state-of-the-art wake, yield and electrical models available in the consortium, as a plug-in architecture with the possibility for third party models to extend and enhance predictions. In order to decrease uncertainties around wind farm wake predictions, a small measurement campaign together with the new data available from the industry partners will enable better tuning, and eventually better modeling of the far-field of wind farm wakes.
