Forwarded from CLIMLIST... WIPAFF – Job Opening Analysis of properties and impacts of offshore wind park far fields - analysis of wind farm wakes and their regional climate impact using meso-scale wind field models and an analytical wind farm model We seek a PhD student or a post-doctoral researcher who is interested to simulate offshore wind farm wakes with the WRF model. The employment will be limited to a three-year term, starting as soon as possible. The successful candidate should have some experience in numerical flow or weather modelling and a background in a mathematical of physically based science. The work will be done at the Institute of Meteorology and Climate Research (IMK-IFU) of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany. In case of a PhD work, the thesis should be finalized within these three years and thereafter defended at the University of Cologne, Germany. Overall characterisation of the project The aim of WIPAFF is the analysis of wind and turbulence conditions in far fields of offshore wind farms, i.e., 10 to 100 km behind the wind farms. This is done in order to estimate the impact of large offshore wind farms on neighbouring wind farms, and to assess by numerical modelling the impact of the whole array of planned wind farms in the North Sea on the regional climate. An existing simple analytical wind farm model is to be validated in order to use it for rapid planning processes. The project is a common effort of five joined projects headed by the Institute for Meteorology and Climate Research of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. The other partners are from the University of Braunschweig, the Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht, UL International GmbH (DEWI) in Wilhelmshaven and the University of Tübingen. The project is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economical Affairs and Energy. The project will run from November 1, 2015 to October 31, 2018. The first step will be to integrate an existing ocean wave model into the meso-scale wind field model WRF and to test the coupled model. An appropriate parameterization scheme that describes the offshore wind farms is to be integrated into the model as well. Then the whole updated model is to be tested and validated with SAR, in-situ and aircraft data obtained and provided by the partnering projects within WIPAFF. The updated and tested model will then be used to simulate the interaction of neighbouring wind farms in the North Sea and to assess the overall impact of the planned array of wind farms on the regional climate. Finally, an existing simple analytical wind farm model is to be validated and optimized by comparison to the numerical model results and the experimental data from the other projects.
