Study of wind farm control potential based on SCADA data

Schreiber, Johannes; Salbert, Bastian; Bottasso, Carlo Luigi

In this work, a control-oriented wind farm model is validated against SCADA data from a typical on-shore wind farm, without additional instrumentation available. The comparison of model-predicted and measured power decits due to wake impingement shows good agreement. Furthermore, the model is used to compute optimum yaw misalignments for yaw-induced wake steering, leading to an estimated 1.7% increase in annual energy production by mitigation of wake losses. Results show that wake steering based on standard SCADA data, which is usually available in operational wind farms, has promising potential for open-loop model-based wind farm control.
