Goal of the project
The overarching project aims at delivering a contribution to reliable planning of offshore wind parks by analysing the impact of offshore wind parks in the North Sea on the regional wind field and climate.
Completing, validating and applying numerical and analytical simulation models for offshore wind park wake far fields (10 to 100 km).
Capturing and quantifying offshore wind park wakes far field effects by state-of-the-art in-situ, aircraft and satellite observations.
Providing the basics for decisions on further planning and constructing offshore wind parks.
Impacts which have an immediate influence on North Sea wind park yields and on the regional climate in adjacent coastal areas are in the focus of the investigations.
