Product overview

WindSim Accelerator is CFD-based software with cloud computation on a subscription basis.

WindSim Accelerator helps wind farm investors, developers, consultants and operators develop projects with superior accuracy in less time. This is achieved by wind field simulations performed in the cloud.

The superior simulation accuracy secures wind farm profitability, allowing for increased energy production, reduced maintenance costs and improved financing. Project risks are lowered by using WindSim Accelerator – with high accuracy, high speed wind field simulations.

How does it work?

Data is imported as a grid file. A 3D model is created, based on the grid file and input properties. To reproduce the local wind climate many simulations of the local wind fields are required. Simulations representing different wind directions, different atmospheric conditions and seasonal variations. In the cloud all these simulations can be done simultaneously. Each single simulation can also be parallelized. Additionally, wind farm projects can be run simultaneously – all in all lowering the execution time. WindSim Accelerator can easily lower your execution time by a factor of 100. Pre- and post-processing takes place in WindSim 11.
