South-East Europe wind energy exploitation - research and demonstration of wind energy utilisation in complex terrain and under specific local wind systems

Objective

The existing wind potential areas in the former Yugoslav republics (Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia/Montenegro, Bosnia/Herzegovina and Macedonia) are mostly situated in karst regions with steep and cliffy rocks and complex terrain. The prevailing wind conditions at these sites are mainly caused by local wind systems generated by different levels in temperature and air pressure between the Adriatic Sea and the mainland of the bordering countries.

Wind farm sites in these areas provide excellent conditions for wind energy utilisation, but also pose a major challenge to wind farm design and wind turbine technology due to extreme wind speeds, turbulences and wind shear. Aim of the proposed R&D project is the performance of investigations at different locations in South East Europe, relating the mountainous and complex structure of terrain, the characterization of local wind systems like "Bora" and the more efficient and reliable operation of large scale wind turbine.
