WindSim 5.1

WindSim 5.1 includes a long list of new features, added functionality, and valuable extensions.

 

NEW FEATURES INCLUDES

 

Forecasting Module

Calculates the energy production of your wind farm from CFD downscaled mesoscale weather predictions corrected by Artificial Neural Networks.

Losses & Uncertainties Module

Calculate the uncertainty of your simulation under Tools/Losses and Uncertainties.

Scaled turbulence in the wind resource module

Get a scaled ambient turbulence map when providing time series with standard deviation to the program.

Latest IEC classification after the standards (Frandsen model)

Define the turbine class by the IEC 61400-1, edition 3, amendment 1 (2010). Inclusion of the wake added turbulence by the Frandsen model.

K-omega Wilcox turbulence model

A new two-equation turbulence model is available which has shown good results for the turbulence simulation on complex sites.

Silent installation

Makes it easy to install large amount of user licenses.

Global Mapper API

Via the terrain editor you can now easily convert from all kinds of formats to the WindSim grid.gws format using Global Mapper.

Queuing

Run your wind field simulations while working in other modules or projects.

 

IMPORTANT BUG FIXES AND UPDATES OF CURRENT TOOL

 

Power curve creation tool

Give irregular binned power curves by easily copy and paste.

Silent installation

Makes it easy to install large amount of user licenses.

LIDAR correction tool

Calculate also the standard deviation.

Terrain editor

Easier and faster handling of terrain data.

Map conversion

Conversion from map files was improved in accuracy.

Smoothing

Improved smoothing routine to get better convergence.
