Management of Weather and Climate Risk in the Energy by John A. Dutton (auth.), Alberto Troccoli (eds.)

By John A. Dutton (auth.), Alberto Troccoli (eds.)

Meteorological and weather info are certainly crucial either in day by day power administration and for the definition of creation and distribution infrastructures. for example, the availability of electrical energy to clients will be disturbed by means of severe meteorological occasions resembling thunderstorms with surprisingly robust winds, serious icing, critical chilly spells, sea point elevation linked to hurricane surges, floods … To be protected from such occasions, it isn't adequate to behave when they have taken position. it is important to spot their strength affects accurately and examine the chance in their incidence. This ebook exhibits that this may simply be performed via an better discussion among the strength neighborhood and the weather and meteorology group. this suggests an in-depth discussion among actors to outline accurately what sort of facts is required and the way it's going to be used. Météo-France has been in long term cooperation with the strength area, together with the fields of electrical energy creation and distribution. Drawing in this adventure, it's going to be famous during this admire the significance of lo- time period partnership among actors as exemplified right here by means of the message of EDF.

Example text

The dissipation of kinetic energy represents the net mechanical power of atmospheric motion; it cannot be measured directly and hence there is controversy over the amount. 32 W/m 2 (Dutton, 1986; Kung, 1969). 3 days provides a time scale for the dissipation of kinetic energy should the solar forcing cease. This discussion is summarized in Table 2. There are significant implications. Although the world use of energy by humans is critical to contemporary society, the power involved is quite small compared to that in the Earth’s environment.

Complementary discussion on weather and climate predictions can be found in Dutton (2009) and Buontempo et al. (2009) in this volume. 2. Rationale for Weather and Climate Forecasting Weather forecasting has been around for many decades. Beginning from the first hand written charts of the 1940s the technology has expanded enormously. Forecasts are now performed using the most powerful supercomputers available that churn out millions of pieces of information coming from a combination of measurements of the earth system and the mathematical representation of the atmosphere, ocean, land and ice.

100 by 100 km in the horizontal and 50 m in the vertical for the atmosphere). Dynamic and thermodynamic relationships are solved for each cell as well as for the interactions amongst cells. All components of the earth systems could in principle be included in forecasting systems for each lead time. Practical considerations, however, limit the complexity of such systems. For instance, a weather forecasting system is normally constituted of an atmospheric model with a land surface component (left-hand-side in Figure 2).
