Wind Farm Optimization

Just because wind is turbulent doesn't mean your operations need to be.

Wake steering control

Increase power production by 7-13% while reducing power variability by up to 72%

Turbine micro-siting

Include non-linear wind effects in modelling to improve overall power production performance

High-resolution forecasting

Gain access to better predictions to improve asset utilization and reduce total lifecycle costs

wake-turbulence

Wake steering control

Operators traditionally face their turbines directly into the wind. Angling turbines slightly away from the wind steers their wakes away from downstream turbines and improves power production. Turbulence in wakes can strain turbine blades, thereby increasing maintenance budgets.

Air turbulence from wakes can make wind farm production erratic on a minute resolution: too short for fast-cycle gas generators, making supply and demand matching difficult for ISOs and leading to inefficient operations.

offshore-wind

High-resolution forecasting

Get minute-by-minute forecasts for both onshore and offshore farms. Optimize your operations for this through both wake steering and improved maintenance scheduling. Use local geographic models in your onshore operations to improve power forecasting for your trading group. Better manage offshore fleets by optimally managing maintenance crews and planning downtime for low-power periods.
