Integrated, Value-based, and Multi-objective Wind Farm Control powered by Artificial Intelligence

TWAIN is an Horizon Europe project (GA101122194) running from November 2023 to October 2027, with the support of 12 partners from Denmark, Spain, Netherlands, France, Germany, Belgium, Poland and Ireland.     

The project is dedicated to ensuring the reliable and cost-effective design and operation of wind power plants, with a specific emphasis on system stability, security, and environmental considerations. This involves the pivotal role of coordinated solutions for wind farm control and asset management. 

TWAIN aligns with ambitious decarbonization goals, acknowledging the transformative influence of powerful catalysts such as artificial intelligence (AI) and digitalization, driving the energy transition, and enabling the integration of wind farm control technology processes into the operation and design of future energy systems.

TWAIN supports wind farm owners/operators decision-making for a system-wide optimised performance by fully integrating wind farm control at five levels: 

1

Merging diverse data from wind farms at different life stages.

2

AI-enhanced integration of multi-disciplinary processes and phenomena affecting wind farm operation.

3

Integration of multi-level prospects of wind farm control to access the added value of operation mode.

4

Using multi-level controllers and scenario analyses for decision support to achieve the balanced coexistence of wind power plants with their environment and society.

5

Sharing TWAIN outcomes with a wider audience.

Project Goals and Objectives 

To develop a modern data collection and analysis environment for the TWAIN workflow.

To digitalise, validate, and incorporate the prediction tools for the relevant processes of wind farm control.

To quantify the economic, social and environmental implications and risks for a series of industrially critical case studies.

To optimise multi-objective, value-based WFC, through multi-level controller integration and related wind farm design.

To facilitate testing and adoption of the open-source TWAIN decision support environment for wind power asset management.
