EUROMECH Colloquium 528 22. februar 2012 - 24. februar 2012

Wind Energy and the impact of turbulence on the conversion process

Organized as the EUROMECH Colloquium 528 in cooperation with the EAWE (European Academy of Wind Energy)  and the ERCOFTAC (European Research Community on Flow, Turbulence and Combustion).

Oldenburg, Germany, 22nd-24nd February, 2011

Wind energy research is an emerging research topic driven by the actual energy discussion in our society. For the next decades it is one of the most promising renewable energies with a fast growing industry, which is actually installin close to 40 GW rated power of new wind energy convertors per year. This growing market necessitates research to further advance this field. This needed research is interdisciplinary; nevertheless the basic driving resource is the wind (aerodynamics).  One of the big challenges for wind energy is to reach better understanding of turbulence and the impact of turbulence on the wind energy conversion process. This challenge also increases with increasing size of the turbines.
With this Colloquium we aim to bring together researchers from different communities, who all can contribute important expertise to the field of wind energy. With this conference we hope to succeed to bring new knowledge together and discussed new applications for wind energy. We propose to publish the contribution in a book after the conference.

special topics are:

  • Energy meteorology - atmospheric turbulence and its impact on the power production
  • Flow modeling  - CFD in particular LES modeling for wind turbines
  • Turbulence - and its characteristic feature like the inflow conditions
  • Rotor aerodynamics - dynamic stall, flow control
  • Fractal and multi-scale generated turbulence
  • Dynamics of wind turbines
  • Wake effect and flows inside of wind parks

A special ERCOFTAC session is planned.

Dates and deadlines:

Abstract submission: November 15, 2011
Response/accepting the contribution: , December 20, 2011
Early registration: until January 15, 2011
Late registration: after January 15, 2012
Submission of full paper: March 31, 2012
