Helping you harness the full power of complex wind energy sites The optimisation of a power plant layout is an intricate process that requires high quality data input, calculations, precise analysis and advanced computer modelling techniques. It is especially important when designing a layout for sites with complex terrain. The SiteDesign® study is based upon sophisticated studies using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software that models forest and other types of complex terrain at a very high level of detail. These simulations are superior to the industry standard linear flow models. We also have formalised tools for assessing the risk of icing and the related potential production loss. At each layer of the process, SiteDesign® has the capability to respond to every requirement by combining knowledge and experience, and applying the latest advances in CFD software. This delivers customer value through a number of key benefits. SiteDesign® benefits · Finds the optimal turbine location while balancing the estimated production output with maintenance costs · Specifies the optimum turbine layout for maximum efficiency · Increases business case certainty through site specific long term analysis · Helps optimise the financial performance of your wind power plant Cost of Energy Analysis More accurate forecasts of the total cost of generating electricity are provided, including both the capital expenses to build the power plant amortized over the life span of the power plant, and the operating and overhead expenses to keep the plant running.
