Predicting wind turbine performance

Posted by

Our client planned to install a novel wind turbine on a building. How much energy could it produce? How would they know what it actually produced after installation? We developed models for the wind flow over the building, linked these to climatic records and a new model of turbine performance to predict the output. Then we designed and specified the data logging system and its installation and analysed the data. The client had his answers!
