We present a case study of a wind resource in Brazil with a complex topography dominated by a stable atmosphere and mostly unidirectional wind rose.
Unlike typical sites where the windiest areas are near the highest points, this site’s wind distribution doesn’t align with its topography. The study focuses on how to identify climate characteristics related to this phenomenon, especially for early project development in similar Brazilian sites. This study seeks to conduct a thorough evaluation and performance comparison of three distinct wind models: Vortex BLOCKS, WASP, and Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes Computational Fluid Dynamics (RANS-CFD) model.
Modeled wind resource data for the wind industry. At any site around the world. Onshore and offshore.
