WindSim AS Introduces WindSim Version 5.1 With Powerful Tools for Wind Resource & Energy Assessors, Meteorologists, and Researchers

Results Show Improved Accuracy and Bankable AEP; Maximized Wind Farm Performance; Minimized Risk, Downtime and Maintenance Cost (May 08, 2012)

BOSTON, MA and TONSBERG, NORWAY -- (Marketwire) -- 05/08/12 -- WindSim AS, a pioneer and leading provider of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) technology used to optimize wind turbine placement, wind performance, and bankable AEP, announced the release of WindSim 5.1 which includes a long list of new features, added functionality, and valuable extensions.

Arne Gravdahl, Ph.D., Founder and CEO of WindSim AS, said, "Our WindSim CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) technology is used to optimize wind turbine placement and performance. Using WindSim from early concept evaluation, through engineering to operation, secures overall capital and operating cost effectiveness. WindSim 5.1 broadens our commitment to the wind resource assessment community, and enables the minimization of risk and ensures efficient, predictable, and safe operations."

Download Evaluation | WindSim 5.1 Highlights:

  • FORECASTING MODULE
    Calculates the energy production of your wind farm from CFD downscaled mesoscale weather predictions corrected by Artificial Neural Networks
  • IEC CLASSIFICATION
    Define the turbine class by the IEC 61400-1, edition 3, and amendment 1 (2010). Inclusion of the wake added turbulence by the Frandsen model
  • EXENDED TURBULENCE MODELLING
    The K-omega Wilcox model is ready with improvements in complex sites
  • QUEUING
    Run wind field simulations while working in other modules or projects
  • TERRAIN CONVERSION - GLOBAL MAPPER API
    Via either the Terrain Editor or WindSim Express, see separate news below, you can easily convert from a large variety of formats to the WindSim terrain format using Global Mapper
  • LOSSES & UNCERTAINTIES MODULE
  • SCALED AMBIENT TURBULENCE

Upcoming is WindSim Express, which makes CFD based micro-siting a simple three step procedure. First, name your project. Second, load your turbine positions and measurement data. Finally, set the resolution of the numerical model.


WindSim Express automatically downloads a terrain model of the area of interest and runs the simulations. It runs standalone, but works also as a wizard for setting up projects in WindSim. It will be bundled with WindSim 5.2 for free. Available now as a stand-alone product for WindSim 5.1 Users.

WindSim serves as a platform to support add-on modules; Remote Sensing Correction Tool, Multiple Core Utilization, and Park Optimizer. You can decide to take advantage of the powerful functionality delivered in a particular module whenever it makes sense for you.
