WindLogics, a St. Paul, Minn.-based provider of wind analysis and forecasting services, has been issued a patent for its enhanced measure/correlate/predict (MCP) methodology for wind farm locations.

These methods, which are the underlying technology behind WindLogics' Valuepoint financial analysis services, provide an understanding of the long-term wind variability at wind project sites, the company says.

"Our techniques go far beyond traditional MCP methods that use linear correlation to local short-term data," says Mark Ahlstrom, CEO of WindLogics. "Instead, our enhanced technology finds the complex patterns and relationships between a wind project location and the weather data from the surrounding space, and then uses these relationships to accurately generate the long-term energy production time series for the project."
