2EN is an official reseller partner of WindSim software in Greece.
Why choose WindSim
- Allows the design of wind farms and optimization of turbine placement maximizing energy production and profits.
- Uses the site’s digital terrain model together with wind measurements to calculate results.
- Precisely calculates the characteristics of the wind (shear, vear, turbulence) on the turbines locations.
Computational Fluid Dynamics
WindSim is a CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) program that calculates the wind map of a given area by solving Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) non-linear equations.
Solving nonlinear transport equations for mass, momentum and energy gives WindSim the ability to accurately simulate the wind potential in areas of complex topography and climatic conditions.
The process of solving the above nonlinear differential equations is iterative. Starting with hypothetical initial conditions, the solution occurs progressively through iterations until the convergent solution.
The flow variables solved are:
- Speed components
- Turbulent kinetic energy
- Turbulence dissipation rate
Easier data management and export results thanks to the following 6 modules:
- WIND FIELDS
- WIND RESOURCES
Accurate simulation of wind farms flow field
The fluid dynamics digital models (CFD) in conjunction with roughness data(vegetation, presence of buildings …) which are added to the digital terrain model (DTM), offer a more realistic prediction of the effect of topography on the flow field, than simpler, linear models used in other software.
