Load and power measurements programme on wind turbines operating in complex mountainous regions

A large and promising portion of the European wind energy market is located in thesouthern European countries: Greece, Italy, Spain and Portugal. In most cases thebest sites for wind energy utilization in these countries are located in mountainousareas which pose particular problems for implementation. The influence of suchterrain on the safe and reliable operation of wind turbines was largely unknown.The project entailed a coherent research programme to address performance andreliability issues in wind turbines in complex mountainous installations. In particular,the research sought to quantify terrain effects in terms of safe and
