Evaluation of potential areas – wind atlas
Wind mapping (mean speed, energy density, Weibull parameters, turbulence, wake effects…) – Regional wind atlas –Wind resource maps.
Wind measurement campaign
Wind computations on site allow optimizing met mast siting and correcting measurements including Lidar ones in complex terrains.
Energy yield assessment – Wind and solar energy
MCP and meteorological data analysis
Meteodyn extrapolates to a long-term period (in general 10 years) wind measurements made on the site during a short period of time (in general 1 year).
Wind assessment over complex terrains – CFD modelling
Meteodyn computes wind or solar resources over any kind of terrains: mountains, forests, ridges….
Wake effects and production assessment
Wake effects between wind turbines are calculated to estimate constraints, turbine lifespan and production losses. Considering production losses and uncertainties, we estimate energy production.
Interaction wind farms / photovoltaic farms
From panel’s geometry and lay-out, Meteodyn identifies the impact of the panel’s project on wind flow and offers the best location for wind turbines – and vice versa.
Energy assessment in urban area – small wind and urban PV systems
Meteodyn takes into account terrain effects (topography and roughness) as well as building effects to assess wind/solar potential and energy production.
Profitability and feasibility of project
Site turbine suitability – IEC criteria evaluation
Meteodyn analyzes the site/turbines suitability IEC – 61400 1 standards. From these results, Meteodyn helps you to select the adequate wind turbine class for an optimal operating.
Optimization of turbines/panels layout
According to the site topography, wake effects and turbine constraints, Meteodyn computes the best location of turbines or panels in solar plants to increase their energy yield.
Extreme wind analysis on site
Available storm data on a long period are extrapolated at each turbine to calculate the 50-year return wind speeds at each wind turbine hub height
Creation of bankable reports
Meteo data analysis, MCP, power curves (P90, P75), turbulence analysis, Bank certificate, « due diligence ».
Wind and solar power forecast
Very short term forecasting (0-4h)
This combined use of statistical and physical modelling methods integrates on-site real-time measurements as well as mesoscale forecasts to optimize very short-term forecasting.
Short term forecasting (0-5 days)
Forecasting mesoscale data are processed and transferred with our CFD model to the site and combined with statistical correction. Thus, we get for the entire park but also for each turbine, wind power forecasting with consideration of air density, atmospheric stabilities learnt from mesoscale data and wake effects.
