(Graduation) Internship Noise and Power Forecast Modelling (wind turbine) 

Will you help us to further optimize and innovate our state-of-the-science noise and power forecast model?

Arcadis has been busy developing new products for the wind energy industry. Arcadis uses meteorological models for the prediction of the long term wind climate, short term wind power forecasts etcetera. Building on this technology Arcadis developed an app for residents to gain insight into wind turbine noise forecasts (see www.arcadis.com/geluidsverwachting). There are a lot more uses for these new prediction models but further optimization and more research is needed.

The research internship is mainly aimed at the further optimization and validation of the current products and the development of new related applications. We would like to further improve short term predictions by pattern recognition (statistical analysis) or machine learning techniques. We also want to be better at determining the influence of the input data. We are looking for an open-minded independent analyst that can identify improvement areas but also sees opportunities for innovation. For example, a possible new application could be to provide short term noise forecasts for outdoor music events (festivals).

Besides the specific research project there is also room to help in regular studies for wind sites.
