The development of a model needs to include a validation process to determine how accurate it is for its intended purpose. Equally, any control design requires the demonstration of its performance. In CL-Windcon, these processes will be performed by increasing level of practical complexity, from simulation to wind tunnel, and finally in real wind farm testing.
The demonstration of the control methods will be pursued using the control oriented models, with scaled testing in the wind tunnel and full scale testing, using an experimental wind farm.
The collected data during the experiments will be of public access at the end of the project, becoming a useful input for future model validations and research.
