Wake model for offshore wind farms


Fuga is a wake model for offshore wind resource estimation. It is implemented as a Windows program with a graphical user interface. Key features are prediction of shadowing from neighbouring farms and effects of atmospheric stability from moderately stable over neutral to unstable.

The current version of Fuga assumes a horizontally homogeneous atmospheric boundary layer. Therefore, it is best suited for flat terrain with a constant roughness length, i.e. mainly for offshore wind farms.

The annual energy production is calculated by wind climates specific for each turbine site as extracted from a WAsP workspace file - so please note that a WAsP workspace file is a prerequisite for working with Fuga. Statistics of atmospheric stability are prescribed in an additional file.
