SOWFA + Super Controller (ssc)
Research into wind plant control has the potential to improve global wind plant performance over what is possible by controlling individual turbines alone, and is a focus of the DOE Atmosphere to Electronics initiative (http://energy.gov/eere/wind/atmosphere-electrons). Using the previously developed SOWFA + Super Controller tool (SSC), researchers within the advanced controls group will research the scientific basis of wind farm control. This will include detailed validation and verification studies using SSC in comparison with other modeling tools, as well as field-test data. Wind plant control systems will also be designed and tested using the SSC tool.
