  Information - IS38 - NP1.03/ERE3 Nonlinear problems of wind energy (co-organized by NP & ERE)

Event Information
One of the most promising way for sustainable energy production is
the wind energy conversion. The high
efficiency level has led to tremendous increase in the electrical power production world wide. The next challenges are the further increase of the efficiency and the wind energy conversion offshore. One central challenge of this technique lies in the understanding of the nature of the energy resource, i.e. the understanding of the turbulent wind fields and their interaction with a wind turbine. Both aspects are intrinsically nonlinear.
For instance, the characteristics of turbulence in the lower boundary layer of the atmosphere plays a crucial role in the optimization of construction and functioning of wind energy captors. Issues ranging from the degree of temporal non-uniformity of the power production to the exposure of devices (turbines, generators) to extreme wind gusts, are all governed by the statistics of turbulent fluctuations.
