SafeWind End-Users Workshop, 
Fredericia, Denmark
Friday, 2 March 2012

Morning Session (09:00-10:30):

• From Anemos to SafeWind : 10 years of front-end research and innovation in wind power
• The SafeWind objectives and highlight results
• Challenges in the use of forecasts for power system management.
• What comes next?

Lueder von Bremen (ForWind) and Matthias Lange (energy & meteo systems): Ensemble forecasting and detection of extreme events and fluctuating wind power
• Alerting system by Energy&Meteo: How can large forecasting errors be detected in advance?
Which kind of warning or correction can be sent to end-users?
• Improved Ensemble Spread utilising 100m winds
• Spatial Ensemble Modelling of Uncertainty and Extreme Events
• Characterizing Wind Power Fluctuations and their prediction using Ensembles


Late Morning Session (11:00-12:30):

Henrik Madsen, Jan Kloppenborg Møller, Pierre Pinson (DTU Informatics), Henrik Aalborg Nielsen, Torben Skov Nielsen (ENFOR): Advantages of using probabilistic forecasts of wind power production

Hans Peter (Igor) Waldl (Overspeed): The Anemos prediction system: Probabilistic forecasting, extremes, and beyond.

  • Probabilistic forecasting for management of extremes
  • The challenge of cut-off predictions
  • Operational experience and evaluation
