Wind Energy

Examining the wind potential in orographically complex areas

Measurements with calculation results of a numerical modeling were taken within the scope of the wind power measurement program of Saxony. Modeling was carried out large-scale with a spatial resolution of 5 x 5 km grids and small-scale with a 1.5 x 1.5 km grid. A method to determine the size of the capacity effect was further developed and utilized as well. The achievable accuracies of the annual average value of the wind velocity exceed the required threshold value of 0.2 m/s so that the numeric modeling for the utilization of wind power cannot yet be used (detail information in German).
