Internship – Validation of Wind Resource Model Chain
Development of new wind farms require accurate modelling of the wind climate to identify the most suitable areas for siting and to estimate the project yield. This is typically achieved by running a multi-scale wind flow model chain to simulate the wind resource over the area of interest.
Assessing the skills of the model chain to simulate the wind resource is key for further improvement but also crucial to evaluate the uncertainty in the estimations, and therefore the risk associated to a new wind farm project. Evaluation of the uncertainty requires several on-site measurements (i.e., tall meteorological masts recording wind speed, wind direction, turbulence intensity, etc.) to be compared with the model chain outputs to derive key performance indicators such as model bias & correlations with measurements.
3E has developed its own wind resource modelling solution in the past years and is looking for a motivated intern to help the R&D team in the development of a consistent validation framework. This validation framework aims to standardize and automate the workflow for evaluating uncertainty of the simulated wind resource. This will be achieved by comparing wind model chain outputs with on-site measurements in different atmospheric and site complexity to derive meaningful performance metrics. The key results should be easily interpretable by creating powerful visualisations and standard reporting.
You will be part of 3E’s R&D team and will have full support and guidance from experienced researchers. The main tasks will include:
The tasks will require at least 4 months of trainee participation, with possibility of extension to 6 months.
In addition to a stimulating atmosphere in a young and highly motivated group of people, 3E offers:
