A2e - MMC - PNNL - WRF-LES - Convective - TTU


Atmosphere to Electrons (A2e) is a new, multi-year, multi-stakeholder U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research and development initiative tasked with improving wind plant performance and mitigating risk and uncertainty to achieve substantial reduction in the cost of wind energy production.

The A2e strategic vision will enable a new generation of wind plant technology, in which smart wind plants are designed to achieve optimized performance stemming from more complete knowledge of the inflow wind resource and complex flow through the wind plant.

Project: Mesoscale-Microscale Coupling

This model performance study features several federally funded U.S. laboratories collaborating on various mesoscale and microscale model simulations and assessments to establish a validated model for the inflow conditions at the Scaled Wind Farm Technology Facility (SWiFT), located at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. The collected field data observed at SWiFT display ranges of atmospheric behaviors. The project spans March 2015 through September 2018.

Dataset Overview

This dataset includes large-eddy simulation (LES) output from a convective atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) simulation of observations at the SWIFT tower near Lubbock, Texas on July 4, 2012. The dataset was used to assess the LES models for simulation of canonical convective ABL. The dataset can be used for comparison with other LES and computational fluid dynamics model outputs.
