Software Tool Designed for Optimized Wind Resource Assessments

29 September 2017

Certification body DNV GL has launched WindFarmer: Analyst, its new software tool designed for optimized wind resource assessments.

The software provides an intuitive step-by-step approach for calculating the potential energy yield of a wind (Source: DNV GL)(Source: DNV GL)farm project, delivering increased calculation transparency and accuracy. The wind resource assessment and analysis tool is built on the experience of conducting “bankable” energy production assessments on over 200,000 MW worth of wind farm projects globally.

A significant feature of WindFarmer: Analyst is the ability to extend and automate its functionality through a built-in scripting interface. The interface is bespoke and customizable, allowing for a wind farm analysis to be written and then updated at the click of a button. Scripts offer a traceable method of performing an analysis, thus reducing errors and making results repeatable. The scripting integration with existing processes and systems can boost efficiency and reduce errors.

The software tool also provides the user with a step-by-step guide through the energy calculation method. The increased transparency enables users to demonstrate how wind energy assessment calculations are obtained.
