Course background 
The course offers an introduction to the weather related phenomena that affect a wind farm. This will cover the most important aspects of meteorology and wind power meteorology, including local effects, variations on different scales, “strange animals in the micro-scale zoo” like complex terrain, forestry, wind profiles, and thermally-driven winds. We will also cover a description of the atmospheric circulation, the structure of the atmosphere, and its various scales; typical large systems as the low pressure system, monsoons and hurricanes are described; and modelling of the atmosphere will be discussed. A question and answer session will close the day.

Trainer
The course will be taught by Lars Landberg (DNV GL, Group Leader, Renewables. Strategic Research and Innovation) who is also the developer of the course. Lars Landberg has also recently written a book on the subject of the course: Meteorology for Wind Energy – An Introduction. Published by Wiley. 

Course outline: 
09:00 Introduction 
09:30 - Why does the wind blow? 
            - Structure of the atmosphere: the atmospheric engine, escape velocity, 
              the layers of the atmosphere, the greenhouse effect, albedo 
            - Atmospheric scales: global, synoptic, meso, micro 
            - The low-pressure system 
11:00 Coffee 
11:15  - The monsoons, tropical cyclones, hurricanes 
              - Atmospheric variables: velocity (wind), pressure, temperature, humidity, 
                density, stability 
12:30 Lunch 
13:30 - Modelling the atmosphere: global circulation models, 
              numerical weather prediction, chaos, ensemble predictions 
            - Climate change 
            - Wind power meteorology: 
            * Distributions 
            * Variation: diurnal, seasonal, inter-annual variation 
            * Local effects: roughness, orography, obstacles 
            * Strange animals in the zoo: complet terrain, forstry, wind profiles, 
               ana-/katabatic winds, icing 
15:00 Coffee 
15:15 - Wind power meteorology, continued: 
              * Extreme winds / turbulence 
              * Offshore 
              * Instruments we use 
              * CFD & meso-scale modelling 
          - Q&A session 
17:00 Finish 

Who should attend? 
Wind resource analysts, project managers, developers, civil and structural designers, lenders, turbine designers and other professionals who wish to benefit from DNV GL’s technical and commercial knowledge of the meteorological aspects of wind power developments. DNV GL assumes that attendees will have a technical background, but no specific meteorological knowledge is required.
