Wind condition analysis and suitable site selection

Selection of the optimum location, confirmation of the site layout, and selection of the windmill model are important items to be decided at the initial stage of the wind power generation project.

For example, K2 Management:

We will determine the maximum power generation of the site and support clients from the earliest stage of project planning.

  • We analyze the amount of available energy by observing actual wind conditions and utilizing existing data.
  • We verify the output curve as an independent third party, correct the wind turbine (calibration), check the contract conditions.
  • Adopting the evaluation of output curve and selection of windmill according to the conditions peculiar to the site, optimization of layout (micrositting) is carried out using CFD model for more accurate power generation forecast and uncertainty reduction To do.
  • We will investigate and analyze windmill noise and shadow flicker to reduce potential risks of residents’ complaints and project delays that may occur in the future.
  • As a new service, we will verify the performance of wind turbines with low availability, calculate optimum power generation, and validate output curves guaranteed by OEM (manufacturer).

3D CFD analysis (Micro-Siting)

In order to optimize (micro-sitting) the layout of places where it is difficult to construct wind farms such as complex topography, forest area, building proximity, K2 Management uses the latest CFD (numerical fluid dynamics) wind condition simulation . By utilizing our advanced CFD service, we can check the optimum location for windmill installation and windmill models, and calculate wind conditions that maximize annual power generation and wind turbine life. Our services to optimize the wind farm layout by careful wind condition analysis with CFD have proved throughout the world.

Our 3D CFD report, for example, includes the following items:

  • Description of the wind farm site
  • Input parameters
  • CFD technique
  • Visualization of wind condition by 3D
  • In light of international standard IEC 61400, the results of analysis of extremely important parameters for wind farm such as turbulence, rapid change of wind direction / wind speed, wind inflow angle, etc.
  • Proposal for development progress and next step
