NEXTFARM

NEXTFARM is a project where we develop the next generation tools that will allow for highly realistic yet practical engineering simulations of each individual turbine in a farm during it's life time.

  • Work: Develops tools that are both very accurate and fast for simulating the loads and performance for all the individual wind turbines in a farm
  • Main planed innovation: Will be the first tools that can produce state of the art accuracy simulations for all turbines in a farm at near real time speed
  • Industry benefits
    • Design wind farms with lower LCOE (Levelized Cost of Energy)
    • Better operation of wind farm by taking into account state, hourly wear and production of the individual turbines vs. the electricity price at that time
    • Get the most out of an existing farm by life time and life time extension planning and control
  • Project partners:
  • Funding: NEXTFARM is a KPN project funded by RCN ENERGIX and the industry partners
  • Picture source: NREL
