Project overview:

Reducing LCoE from Offshore Wind by Multiscale Wake Modeling

Awardee:

Cornell University

Started:

Q2, 2020

Technical Challenge Area:

Wind Resource and Site Characterization

Completed:

Q3, 2022

Synopsis:

Cornell will be developing and applying multi-scale high-fidelity atmospheric and wake models to the US East Coast to improve accuracy of simulated high-resolution projected power output from wind farms, in an effort to optimize spacing of wind turbines within farms to maximize power production.

Target Outcomes:

1
Report on comparison tool detailing inputs, assumptions, and key conclusions including potential for capacity and LCoE improvement
