Working Groups

Science Subgroup

Science Subgroup

  • Science Subgroup lead: Alexandra St.Pé (RWE)
  • Empower the wind energy industry to achieve data-driven answers to persistent RSD use hurdles
  • Leverage open source science and tools to build consensus and establish Best Practice Frameworks for Stakeholder collaboration

Flow Correction

  • Leader: Scott Wylie (ZX)
  • Provide data-driven validation of methods used to correct RSD measurements in Complex Flow
  • Demonstrate typical flow curvature bias based on terrain complexity and roughness, and create a standardized correction methods

Site Suitability

  • Leader: Alexandra Arnsten (NRG)
  • Develop tools and standard methodologies for correcting RSD Turbulence Intensity biases when compared to anemometers and RSD’s

Power Curve Correction

  • Leader: Peter Stuart (RES)
  • Formerly the Power Curve Working Group
  • Improve the modeling of turbine performance in real world wind conditions

Power Performance Testing

  • Leader: Dan Bernadett (UL)
  • Develop Best Practices for Power Performance Testing following the IEC 61400-12-1 and beyond

Guidance Subgroup

Guidance Subgroup

  • Guidance Subgroup Lead: Andrew Black (Vaisala)
  • Socialize existing Standards and Best Practices to the broad industry: investors, IEs, OEMs, and developers
  • Clearly identify areas of improvement for acceptance of RSD via surveys and outreach
  • Recommend areas for improvements RSD method improvement to Science Working Groups
  • Amplify findings from Science Group via open-source documents and publications; drive consensus on new Best Practices
