Abstract

The installation of onshore wind farms in Taiwan was finished and under operation for over a decade, yet the construction of onshore wind farms were near a saturation point. Comparing with the onshore wind farms, the rich offshore wind resource of Taiwan is still undeveloped. For the future development of offshore wind farms in western Taiwan and reliable offshore wind resource information, this study applies two reliable and accurate wind model WAsP and Windfarm to simulate the case study at Changhua and Yunlin area. The objective is to optimize the offshore wind farm at different water depths to get the best layout and energy production which the wake effect and wind characteristics are considered. Eventually, the modeling results can be viewed as reference to the correlated authority and wind farm developer.
