New WindForS Project: Minute-scale Power Forecasts

  • News

What is the best way of predicting the energy produced by an offshore wind energy plant in the next few minutes, and how big is the uncertainty of the prediction in the event of major changes in wind speed? These and other questions will be investigated in ParkCast, a new WindFoS project led by Ines Würth at Stuttgart Wind Energy (SWE) Chair at the University of Stuttgart, and Anton Kaifel at the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW).

ParkCast is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy with around 1.14 million euros.
