Projects

The research group CWP participates in the following research projects:

MOUSE

Project leader Jun.-Prof. Laura Lukassen

Verbundvorhaben: MOUSE - Multiskalen- und multiphysikalische MOdelle Und Simulation für die WindEnergie; Teilvorhaben: Rechenintensive Methoden zur umfassenderen Beschreibung windenergierelevanter Fragestellungen

Period: 01.07.2022-30.06.2026

Fuding: BMWK (FKZ 03EE3067A)

Appropriated budget for University Oldenburg part: 1.628.058,80 €
(overall project budget 1.961.243,29 €)

Project partner: 

  • Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg, ForWind – Center for Wind Energy Research, Oldenburg (Coordinator):
    • Research Group Computational Fluid Dynamics for Wind Physics (CWP)
    • Research Group Energy Meteorology (EnMet)
    • Research Group Turbulence, Wind Energy and Stochastics (TWiSt)
    • Research Group Wind Energy Systems (WE-Sys)
  • Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems (IWES), Oldenburg

In order to allow the extensive calculations within this project, a High Performance Computing Cluster at University Oldenburg will be extended within this project.

In the project part of the research group CWP, we investigate an improved description of the load dynamics of wind turbines from fluid-structure interaction simulations and atmospheric simulations.

HPC-project RE-HPC

Project leader Jun.-Prof. Laura Lukassen.

High performance computing cluster to be purchased for the wind energy research at University Oldenburg, applied for by ForWind Oldenburg (project leader Jun.-Prof. Laura Lukassen) with the group Scientific Computing at the University Oldenburg.

The project RE-HPC was approved on Dec. 01, 2021 under the grant number ZW7- 85186744 and is funded by the development bank for the German federal state of Lower Saxony (NBank) and the Ministry of Science and Culture of the State of Lower Saxony(MWK). The funding is provided under the REACT-EU set-up aid (ERDF guideline "Innovation durch Hochschulen und Forschungseinrichtungen" according to paragraph 2.1.2 "Aufbau und Erweiterung von Infrastrukturen der Spitzenforschung") as part of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Appropriated budget: 1.500.000 €

Under the RE-HPC project, the CFD cluster will be used for simulations and data analysis in wind energy research by several research groups.

Ph.D. scholarship at The German Federal Environmental Foundation

Kolleg-Energiewende: Einsatz von Windenergieanlagen zur Charakterisierung der einströmenden Windfelder

Funding: The German Federal Environmental Foundation, link to research project

period: 01.07.2020-31.12.2023

In this research project we investigate the influence of the incoming wind on wind turbines and the potential of modelling the power output of the wind turbine stochastically in order to determine the incoming wind.

Completed projects:

WIND-ELEKTROLYSE

Challenges of a sustainable energy supply: Towards the digitalisation of the wind energy - water electrolysis system WIND-ELEKTROLYSE

Funding: MWK

Period: 01.10.2020-30.06.2021

Project partners:

  • Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, ForWind – Center for Wind Energy Research, Oldenburg:
    • Research Group Turbulence, Wind Energy and Stochastics (TWiSt)
    • Research Group Wind Energy Systems (WE-Sys)
    • Research Group Computational Fluid Dynamics for Wind Physics (CWP)
  • University of Hannover, ForWind – Center for Wind Energy Research, Hannover (Coordination)

In the project part of the research group CWP, we analyse power output fluctuations at wind turbines and their impact on electrolysis processes.
