Having hundreds of variations of the wind farm layout is not rare during the planning and optimisation process of offshore wind farms. In order to support you in handling these different configuration options during your project planning as efficiently as possible, we have defined a workflow which organizes many different farm variants in a development tree.
For this purpose, Wind & Economy defines farm “scenarios” consisting of wind climate, turbine types, hub height, models used to calculate the energy production, electrical grid layout and economic parameters. These scenarios, organized in trees, help you in keeping track of your valuable work and the development process. Comparative reporting of the results from a number of offshore wind layouts supports you in selecting the right track towards your optimised wind farm which leads to higher profits.
