About the workshop
A consortium of six institutes in four countries has been developing a methodology for the integrated design and control of clusters of offshore wind farms. The ClusterDesign project is delivering a Toolbox that can be applied by any type of company looking to optimise the offshore cluster design process.

The ToolBox facilitates finding solutions that meet multiple criteria, primarily reduced costs through reduced loads, but also maximum energy extraction, reduced uncertainty of energy yield predictions, and maximum power system support capability.

The different offshore wind farm design tools are combined and integrates the intelligent control of offshore wind farm clusters at the planning stage. The design tools assist wind farm developers and manufacturers in designing cost effective wind farm and cluster topologies, electrical connection configurations and topologies, as well as wind turbine and wind farm control strategies.

The topics of the workshop will be as follows:

•    Wake modelling
•    Electrical modelling
•    Loads modelling
•    Cluster control & Integrated operation
•    Integrated design
