Radar Based Wake Optimization of Offshore Wind Farms
Technical Challenge Area:
O&M and Safety
N/A (Currently Underway)
GE Research will develop wake characteristic algorithms based on radar measurement input data and perform a detailed design of a system architecture for park-wide radar-based wake steering.
This project will significantly reduce this uncertainty of existing wake control solutions by introducing embedded radar systems that directly measure the wake properties and developing new algorithms to continuously adapt wake models and optimize the wake steering.
