Forecasting the wind power distribution for wind parks (WindFX)
Methods to forecast electricity production from wind farms in Austria for forecast horizons of 6 hours to 10 days are compared and evaluated for their potential operational installation. State-of-the-art methods documented in the literatureand new methods will be implemented. They use best-guess and ensemble predictions ofa numerical weather prediction (NWP) model and an archive of historical wind farm andNWP data spanning several years. Probabilistic methods will maximize the information content of the forecast.
