Wind Resource Analysis (WRA)

Wind Resource Analysis (WRA)

GARUDA has a dedicated Wind Resource Analysis (WRA) Department with experienced Engineers from the wind industry. All our engineers have hands on experience on the WAsP, windPRO, Windographer & Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) software analysis.

GARUDA has pro-actively installed Met mast at different hub heights in all the wind rich states in India to calculate the energy prognoses. As WRA plays an important role and influences the financial decision of the investors and banks, GARUDA is therefore fully equipped with the advanced software tools and engineers who are specialized in data collection, analytical and interpretation skills to optimise the turbine layout.

Primary assessment is carried out using basic tools like WAsP. As the complexity of the site increases, CFD simulations are carried out to make use of the available data to finalize the optimised locations for wind turbines and to make proper energy yield prediction, after considering all the uncertainties for that particular site. Risk assessment is also carried out which includes the quantification of the project specific uncertainties and the whole range of exceedance probabilities of the wind farm’s annual energy production in its life time.
