Update: Results display for extended wind speed ranges

Wake2e has been updated to version 3.9-9. The result display of the extended wind speed range (3-29m/s) introduced in version 3.9-8 was optimized: The range of the wind speed dependent results was adjusted in a way that the extended wind speed range of a wind turbine will only be displayed, if all relevant neighbours have a complete data set for the extended wind speed range.

Update: Extended wind bin range from 3 to 29m/s

With the introduction of version 3.9-8 of wake2e the range of regarded wind bins is extended from 5-20m/s to 3-29m/s.

Therefore the wind turbine library was revised and updated to version 1.6.207. For some older wind turbines the necessary data for the extended range of wind bins is missing. In these cases a warning will be emitted by wake2e. However, we are working with the wind turbine manufacturers to fill these data gaps.

We hope that you will appreciate the new features and we are looking forward to your feedback.

Update: map view including hillshading and air density values in the result file

With the introduction of version 3.8.6-7 hill-shading was added to the map in the "project view" of wake2e.
Additionally for projects in Germany you will find the average annual air density at hub height of the wind turbine in your result file in chapter "RESULTS,other"

We hope that you will appreciate the new features and we are looking forward to your feedback.

Update: Corine 2012

With the introduction of version 3.8.6 the CORINE land cover dataset of the European Environment Agency (EEA) changes to the newest and now validated Version 18.

With the change from version 17 to version 18 the data basis changes from the 2006 data (CLC2006) to the 2012 data (CLC2012).

Update: Display of the rated power of WTs and user interface improvements

With the introduction of version 3.8.5 the wake2e wind turbine library was extended and contains values like the rated power. This value will be shown if you e.g. move the cursor on a wind turbine on the map in the "project view". In addition a couple of modifications have been applied to the graphical user interface to further improve the work with wake2e.

We hope that you will appreciate the new features and we are looking forward to your feedback.

Update: Plot of the Calculation Results, new Features for Curtailments and Individual Design Values

Plot of the Calculation Results

The new "charts view" shows the calculation results as a plot of the effective turbulence intensities depending on the wind speed. The display may be reduced to a group of WTs or single WTs. Additionally the design values will be shown for all selected WTs. This allows a fast visual comparison between the design values and the conditions on site.

New wake2e version 3.3.4

With the introduction of version 3.3.4 wake2e determines the “Windzone” according to DIN EN 1991-1-4/NA and according to “DIBt 2004 Anhang B” for projects in Germany. You will find the results in the section “results → other” of the result file.
