Wind Resource Grid (WRG) files

Probably the most complete modeling product on the market: long-term statistics at all heights within an area plus high-resolution temperature, mean wind speed, extreme wind speed (VREF) and turbulence intensity maps. Now with the ability to be calibrated with measurements.

When to use FARM?

When the wind farm area is already selected but not yet the turbine locations or their class.
