Abstract
Regarding the development of a wind power management system that is utilizable for the prediction of wind power feed-in under offshore weather conditions the predictability of offshore wind speeds as the main impact parameter are investigated. A multi-model ensemble prediction system (EPS) is used to generate deterministic and probabilistic wind speed forecasts which are compared with measurements from the offshore research platform FINO 1. A multi-model EPS offers the possibility to provide a high-quality forecast with a reliable estimation of the potential uncertainty on top. In the first part of this study a method is presented that upgrade the EPS in a way that the final ensemble average forecast is not only BIAS-corrected but also optimized in terms of the RMSE. The resultant EPS is used to generate probabilistic wind speed forecasts (quantiles and prediction intervals). Due to the fact that the first probabilistic results are not reliable two calibration methods are applied that lead to an improvement of the EPS consistency and to reliable quantile forecasts and prediction intervals.
