Collaborating to Make Designs More Efficient and Less Damage-Prone
A research and development consortium (the ClusterDesign initiative) has now been running for nearly three years and recently completed its first round of activities. The partners in the project, which is partly funded by the European Union, have been trying to produce a series of interlinked models that can be put together to provide future designers of wind farms with a ‘Wind Cluster Controller’ and a 'ToolBox for Integrated Wind Farm Design'. These will help designers optimise the layout of turbines within a wind farm, and also improve the overall design of clusters of wind farms.
