Projects

The research group CWP participates in the following research projects:

EMUwind

EMUwind - Advanced modelling and uncertainty analysis of atmospheric wind fields based on highly resolved measurements; sub-project: Models and measurements of wind conditions and their effect on modern wind turbines

Period: 01.02.2021-31.01.2024

Funding: BMWi (FKZ 03EE2031A)

Project partners

  • Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg, ForWind – Center for Wind Energy Research, Oldenburg (Coordinator):
    • Research Group Turbulence, Wind Energy and Stochastics (TWiSt)
    • Research Group Wind Energy Systems (WE-Sys)
    • Research Group Computational Fluid Dynamics for Wind Physics (CWP)
    • Research Group Energy Meteorology (EnMet)
  • University of Stuttgart
  • Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems (IWES), Bremerhaven
  • GE Renewable Germany GmbH, Hamburg (Associated Partner)

In the project part of the research group CWP, we investigate the interaction of turbulent wind fields with wind turbines by means of Fluid Structure Interaction simulations.

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: 01.07.2020-30.06.2023

Scholarship holder: Julian Jüchter

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.
