In the webinar on 3 February I showed a Horizon Europe topic coming up related to wind energy. If you are interested in investigating / forming a consortium, let us know.
C5-D3-RES-04-2021: Physics and aerodynamics of atmospheric flow of wind for power production
Wind turbines grow bigger and taller, the blade tips are increasing more affected by turbulent atmospheric flow features, while airborne wind energy systems operate at even higher altitudes. This zone of the atmosphere currently lays between the current numeric models at the microscale and the mesoscale. Further, the data integration of the models of these different altitudes is still scarce. Thus, there is a need for an improved understanding of atmospheric flow physics, particularly regarding wind power production forecasting.
