In WAsP 12.6 DTU Wind Energy introduces automatic import of Generalised Wind Climate files from the Global Wind Atlas. This makes it possible for WAsP users to quickly perform preliminary wind resource assessment, siting and energy yield calculation for wind turbines and wind farms.

When inserting a Generalised Wind Climate file (GWC) from the Global Wind Atlas in the WAsP software, WAsP uses the coordinates of meteorology stations, turbine sites, reference sites and resource grids to calculate the position of the interpolation centre . Subsequently, WAsP uses the interpolation centre and the nearest neighbour algorithm to assign weights to GWC files from the Global Wind Atlas and calculate an interpolated GWC.

Senior Development Engineer Brian O. Hansen comments on the new WAsP version:
“WAsP 12.6 provides easy and correct access for WAsP users to wind climate data from the Global Wind Atlas. This makes it possible for WAsP users to quickly perform preliminary wind resource assessment, siting and energy yield calculation for wind turbines and wind farms.”
