Duration: 1979-1981

Operating Agent: National Board for Energy Source Development, Sweden

Participants: Austria, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Japan, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, the United Kingdom, the United States

Objective:

  • To study the environmental impact and operational safely of large-scale WECS
  • To investigate the uncertainty in wind forecasting appropriate for day-to-day operation of WECS
  • To recommend design methods for selected load cases

Progress and Achievements


The objectives of this Task  were:

  • To study the environmental impact and operational safely of large-scale WECS
  • To investigate the uncertainty in wind forecasting appropriate for day-to-day operation of WECS
  • To recommend design methods for selected load cases

The Task was divided into eight sub-tasks, carried out in three different countries:

  • A1: Study of WECS farm area and WECS safety limit requirements
  • A2: Study of combined wind biomass energy systems
  • A3: Study of wind wake effects
  • A4: Study of the impacts of large-scale WECS on the perfomance of electromagnetic wave systems
  • A5: Study of aesthetic factors and visual effects of large-scale WECS
  • A6: Reporting
  • B1: Investigation of the uncertainty in wind forecasting for wind power networks
  • C1: Load case recommendations
