WeBoost Advanced

What happens when turbines get more "social"?
Increase plant output. Lower Opex.

Wind turbines in a wind farm affect one another. When they work collaboratively, their collective performance increases.

A multi-disciplinary approach that results in:

analytics

Assess increased AEP potential by enabling "social" turbines that learn from and adapt to other turbines in the wind farm.

Quantify reduction in fatigue loading on turbines by fine-tuning the operation of upstream turbines.

Combine key scientific disciplines to assess the potential of how "social" wind farms can benefit you.

Why WeBoost Advanced?

Increased wind farm performance doesn't have to end with the benefits of WeBoost Basic. We assess how much potential can be unlocked by turning your wind farm "social."

Wake Steering

Collaborating Control for Maximized Performance

You don't have to choose between maximum output and increased lifetime. Wake steering enables you to achieve both by managing upwind turbine operation to steer wake away from downwind turbines.

Collective Yaw

Stop wasting energy by chasing every small wind gust

Turbines experience different wind impacts based on their location within the farm. Data collected by individual turbine sensors miss the bigger picture of larger wind flow. So turbines waste lifetime and energy chasing smaller localized wind flow. Collective Yaw can increase your plant output while increasing lifetime.

Implementing WeBoost Advanced

01 / 04

Calibration

We calibrate a state-of-the-art wake model using actual SCADA data from your wind farm.

Control Tuning

Precise turbine positioning control requires precise controlling. In this phase, we tune your controls to have the exact level of responsiveness necessary for the minuscule and frequent turbine adjustments your strategy will require.

Predictive Analysis

We design a custom model for your wind farm to predict how the combination of collective yaw and wake steering will impact your wind farm's energy output. Using real-world data, we can assess the ROI for implementing WeBoost Advanced.

Execution Plan

Once your equipment is ready to execute the optimization strategy, we develop an execution plan based on the age and status of your equipment and your weather conditions.
