WindSim is a tool to design highly profitable wind farms. Using CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) WindSim establishes highly detailed wind resource maps; it makes advanced simulations of local wind fields, and it calculates wind power forecasts. It helps to optimize park layouts by identifying turbine locations with the highest wind speeds — but with low turbulence — to maximize production. More info
Windplanner is an online tool to plan a wind project in the pre-feasibility phase, to present to residents and other stakeholders, and to understand the visual impact from the environmental perspective. You can compare alternative park layouts and view the project from any angle, in photorealistic images.
Exchange of data and GIS layers
Working with both software tools entails the easy import of turbine locations and dimensions. Also, Windplanner can import the high-quality WindSim result layers, such as the Wind Resource Map.
