Wind Energy Forecaster

A Web-based Wind Energy Prediction Tool

Aditya Trivedi ’16

Advisor: Dr. Eric LarsonSlide2

Wind is fast growing source of energy

Potential to grow even more

Poorly understood by the publicGrowth of wind will impact the gridThus, a need to inform the public and accurately predict wind energy generation

Motivation and BackgroundSlide3

Web application to predict electricity generation from wind energy

Two main functions

Electricity generation at existing farmsUser inputs LOCATION and DISTANCEPotential for generation at arbitrary locations

User inputs LOCATION and program uses pre-determined input

Application SummarySlide4

Determine a list of active wind farms

Determine turbine models installed

Turbine characteristics differ model to model and impact generationAggregate farms by models installedWhen user makes a query, find all farms within area, get wind forecasts

Model – Existing FarmsSlide5

Determine land characteristics necessary for wind turbine installations

Decide type of turbines to use

Simulate “farm” by determining spacing of turbines and assuming an area

Model – Potential InstallationsSlide6

USGS Wind Turbine database (farms, turbine models)

Wind Turbine manufacturers

Over 100 different models installed in USEach is unique!USGS National Land Cover Database (for potential calculations)National Weather Service (wind speeds)

Data SourcesSlide7

Validation!Compare wind farm output against what the model would have predicted

Determine if sources of error are forecast or model related

Further WorkSlide8
