AWS Truepower has joined a model inter-comparison task from the International Energy Agency (IEA) called WakeBench. More than 40 organizations in 12 countries are participating.

The firms are charged with improving best practices for wind farm modeling techniques and providing a forum for industrial, governmental and academic partners. Results will help develop, evaluate, and improve the atmospheric boundary layer and wind turbine wake models for use in wind energy, both onshore and offshore. Each WakeBench participant will run their wake model using the same initial conditions in order to do a fair comparison. The models will be validated at several different sites. This project started in October 2011, will last for three years, and is being co-managed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the National Renewable Energy Centre of Spain (CENER). CENER, in Spain, is putting together all the test cases and will gather the results from each model and perform the comparison.
