WakeBlaster

Faster than real-time wind farm flow simulation for optimised operational control 

Almost all offshore and most onshore wind turbines are sited in wind farms where curtailments and wake losses can be quite substantial. We establish a technology base that enables operators to increase the joint operational efficiency of wind turbines sited in wind farms.  WakeBlaster delivers cost effective, faster than real-time, yet accurate modelling of even very large wind farms. Control strategies based on WakeBlaster will lead to more efficient wind farms, reducing both social cost and levelised cost of electricity.
