A2e - WAKE - Surface Meteorological Station - SWiFT southwest - METa1 - Reviewed Data


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: Wake Steering Experiment

Planned for May through September 2016, Sandia National Laboratories and the National Renewable Energy Laboratory will execute a joint experimental campaign examining wind farm control at the Scaled Wind Farm Technology (SWiFT) facility, hosted at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. The experimental campaign will be conducted in two phases. In Phase I, an Offset Controller (OC) will be applied to the upwind wind turbine. This controller applies an offset to a nacelle-based wind direction sensor used for aligning the turbine to the wind direction to achieve a prescribed misalignment to the wind. In Phase II, the controller will be replaced by a Wake Steering Controller (WSC) that uses a look-up table based on the FLOw Redirection and Induction in Steady-state (FLORIS) model to find offsets that produce a desired amount of wake steering. The data collected during both phases will be used to perform initial verification and validation studies on controls-oriented models, such as FLORIS, as well as higher-fidelity wind plant analysis models, such as Simulator fOr Wind Farm Applications (SOWFA). Target data include inflow, wake, and turbine performance and loads.
