What is wind resource assessment?

Wind resource assessment such as that performed by using Meteodyn WT, is the process to estimate the future energy production of a wind farm. Accurate wind resource assessment is essential to develop successful wind farms. Wind resource assessment is crucial in the project planning because it assures investors and bankers that the project is feasible and profitable. A bankable wind resource is a key factor in getting the wind farm built.

Wind energy production assessment

Wind flow modeling

Wind flow modeling software has the objective of estimating the energy production of a proposed or existing wind farm. Meteodyn WT uses Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to more accurately estimate the real wind in any terrain type. It performs data analysis to achieve an accurate wind resource assessment.

Wind farm modeling

Wind farm modeling software aims to simulate the energy production of a proposed or existing wind farm. The software takes into account wind data, orography, terrain roughness, wind turbine specifications and environmental obstacles to design a wind farm that maximizes energy production while taking restrictions and construction constraints into account.

Our solutions

Meteodyn develops wind flow modelling software to extrapolate wind speeds across a site and compute wind resource even in the most complex terrains (mountains, forests, ridges, seas, lakes, etc). Contemplating onsite anemometers, meteorological towers, statistics and local wind characteristics, Meteodyn computes wind resource and wind farm production using the most accurate CFD wind resource assessment software.
Meteodyn assists you to make the right decisions concerning your wind farm projects: wind resource, site adequacy, wind turbine layout optimization, wind power forecast, operation and maintenance.
