Title:
Realisierung und Charakterisierung einer süddeutschen Forschungsplattform für Windenergie im bergig-komplexen Gelände
Duration:
01/12/2016 to 31/05/2020
Abstract / short description:
Within the framework of the project a fully functional wind energy test site in complex mountainous terrain is
constructed. The test site location has already been identified within the “KonTest” project (Fkz. 0325656 A-
D). The test site offers both a real and a virtual environment for the investigation of the dynamic behaviour
of wind turbines in complex terrain as well as for testing new technologies and control strategies. The open
platform supports the use of wind energy in complex terrain through improved prediction of performance
and turbine load as well as through yield increase and load reduction. Besides the subproject
"Coordination" the project includes three more subprojects: “Construction and Operation”, “Microclimate”
and “FoWEA”.

The present proposal is part of subproject „Microclimate“ with the goal to characterize the location. To this
end, measurements are carried out at the test site location, initially without the impact of the research
turbines. After two thirds of the project duration the research turbines are constructed and their influence on
the microclimate is investigated. The findings and data are then fed into numerical calculation models which
are thus extended, enhanced and coupled.
