Energy yield calculation

Given the thrust coefficient curve of the wind turbine(s) and the wind farm layout, WAsP can estimate the wake losses for each turbine in the farm and thereby the net annual energy production of each wind turbine and of the entire farm, i.e. the gross production minus the wake losses. Mixed wind farms, with different turbine types and hub heights, are allowed. Click here for details about the model for turbine wakes in wind farms.

  • annual energy productions + wake losses —> net annual energy production of entire wind farm
