- CFD Software for Wind Resource Assessment of Wind Farms in Complex Terrain

0

The wind flow modelling software for wind resource assessment, Annual. Energy Production evaluation, site suitability and turbine layout analysis, energy production optimization, maintenance costs and turbines lifespan validation. A great number of wind farm developers, consultants, manufacturers, wind farm operators and investors already use meteodyn WT. A bankable wind resource is essential in getting the wind farm built. Wind farm modeling software aims to simulate the energy production of a proposed or existing wind farm. Meteodyn uses CFD computations more accurate, particularly in complex terrains. We perform wind resource assessment using data analysis and modeling with meteodyn WT.

 to design more profitable wind farms

  • Wind rose and Weibull distribution at each point
  • Automatic correction of the power curves according to air density
  • Use of multiple met masts in a single calculation
  • Estimation of the production inculding wake effects
  • Evaluation of the mechanical constraints
  • Site suitability analysis according to IEC 61400
  • Full integration of mesoscale data in the microscale results
  • Calculation of losses and production incertainties
  • Automatic split-up of large sites into subdomains

  • Accurate CFD calculations in any kind of terrains, including the most complex. The automatic mesh with refinement at the key locations and the multigrid coupled solver, guarantee this accuracy as well as the convergence.
  • Consideration of atmospheric thermal stability
  • Forest models
  • Calculation ability over very large domains or very important wind farms (The only limiting factor is the available memory of the calulator)
  • Speed of calculation unequaled thanks to the MIGAL solver and to the modelling choices

Correction of Lidar raw data in complex terrain

Spatial variations of  the horizontal and vertical wind speeds lead to errors in the wind speed assessment by the Lidar. These errors can be corrected by the accurate evaluation of the wind characteristics on the measuring cone. Contact-us to know available formats.
