Combining National Meteorological meso-scale data modelling and CFD, for wind power plant production assessments
In order to assist local authorities and wind energy developers, the French Environment and Energy Management Agency, ADEME, has sponsored an updated assessment of the wind resource in France.
Meteolien, a technical SME specialized in wind resource and wind energy production assessment, has joined with Météo-France, the French national meteorological service and Magellium, a GIS company, to address this challenge.
The improvement of Mesoscale modelling in resolution and also in the representation of physical phenomena such as convection provides a valuable tool to generate long term wind data series at a kilometric resolution. Data assimilation all along the simulation increases its consistency with wind observations.
Combining both approaches of Mesoscale modelling and CFD modelling over complex topography areas leads to reliable production assessment for wind power plants.
