Joint IEA Wind Task 32 and Task 36 Workshop on 

Very short-term forecasting of wind power

Date: 12. – 13. June 2018

Venue: Niels Bohr Auditorium, DTU Risø Campus, Roskilde, Denmark

Due to the increasing penetration of renewable energy power systems into the grid, the demand for short-term wind power forecasting increases, as grid operators need to ensure grid stability in spite of the highly fluctuating power sources. As state of the art forecasting techniques using Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models do not cover forecasting horizons in the minute range, different approaches have to be carried out. These techniques include statistical approaches, the use of remote sensing devices such as lidar or radar and also the use of turbine data information from surrounding wind parks. The goal of this workshop therefore was to:

  • Enable an exchange of experience in very short-term forecasting techniques
  • Create links between the potential users and the researchers
  • Come up with a definition of the forecasting horizon of “very short-term” and discuss which forecasting horizon is of interest now and in the future
  • Provide a list of barriers and possible solutions to the adoption of very short-term forecasting
