Preparatory work for the American Wake Experiment (AWAKEN)
This special issue will include manuscripts about the work performed for the preparation of the American Wake Experiment (AWAKEN, https://openei.org/wiki/AWAKEN). This project, which is funded by the US Dept. of Energy, has as main objectives: 1) to collect unprecedented observations of wind farm operations, their interactions with the atmospheric boundary layer, and wind turbine wakes; 2) improve accuracy in modeling wind farm operations; 3) improve efficiency and lower costs of wind power harvesting. The AWAKEN team encompasses international researchers from national laboratories, academia, and the wind energy industry working collaboratively on different wind energy topics, such as field experiments, numerical simulations, instrument development, wind turbine control, and wind plant design.
Topics covered include, but are not limited to:
- Wind turbine
- Wind farm
- Wind energy
- Atmospheric boundary layer
- Wake interactions
- Wind farm blockage
- Wind turbine control
