296 turbines of the AES Corporation are located by Buffalo Gap, Texas, US.
With a capacity of 524 MW it's the world's seventh largest wind farm to-date.

The article link below provides a summary of how Performance Engineer at AES, Tristan Lee, was able to optimize the performance of its aging fleet using latest in technology, that includes the Lufft Ventus Ultrasonic Wind Speed and Wind Direction Sensor.

Tristan was able to increase energy production by using the air density and wind conditions provided by the sensor to create custom algorithms to adjust the yaw and pitch of the wind turbines. The custom algorithms were able to reduce drivetrain loading fatigue, and increased the air foil efficiency.
