Description

The Wind Characteristics Program Element (WCPE) provides wind information, through the Wind Energy Conversion Program (WECP), for those involved in: energy program planning, design and evaluation of performance of wind energy conversion systems (WECS), selection of sites for WECS instal lation, and WECS operations. Battell e, Pacific Northwest Laboratories (PNL) , provides the ERDA Wind Systems Branch (WSB) with technical and management support for the WCPE. A framework has been established to develop and disseminate needed wind information, and a Program Development Plan has been prepared and is continuously being updated to ensure that the needs of the WECP are ... continued below

Description

The Wind Characteristics Program Element (WCPE) provides wind information, through the Wind Energy Conversion Program (WECP), for those involved in: energy program planning, design and evaluation of performance of wind energy conversion systems (WECS), selection of sites for WECS instal lation, and WECS operations. Battell e, Pacific Northwest Laboratories (PNL) , provides the ERDA Wind Systems Branch (WSB) with technical and management support for the WCPE. A framework has been established to develop and disseminate needed wind information, and a Program Development Plan has been prepared and is continuously being updated to ensure that the needs of the WECP are met. Two invitational workshops have been held to obtain planning input and to encourage and facilitate information exchange. Currently the technical work within the WCPE is divided among four program areas. These areas are to provide wind characteristics for: Design and Performance Evaluation; Site Selection; Resource Assessment; and Operations. Work is being undertaken in the first three areas.
