The Sandia National Laboratories Wind Energy Technologies Department is hosting the next Wakebench annual meeting (IEA Wind Task 31) at the Hotel Andaluz in downtown Albuquerque, NM, March 16-17, 2016. The meeting will include a review of wind plant and turbine model validation and verification activities in Europe and the U.S., a discussion about how to unify these activities into a common strategy for verifying and validating wind plant and turbine models, and a discussion of benchmarking opportunities for mesoscale to microscale coupling of atmospheric simulations, wakes, and uncertainty quantification.
