Wind resource assessment and turbine micrositing consultancy RAM Associates says it has received a U.S. patent for wind-modeling algorithms used in its RAMWind modeling software, which produces estimates of wind speeds at turbine sites.

RAM Associates says its terrain-based wind model, RAMWind, has proven to be more accurate than other commercially available models.

The company says it is working toward introducing volume two of the RAMWind software, which will allow modeling of wind speeds based on the input of a single anemometer tower location. RAMWind is capable of resolving terrain effects to a high degree of accuracy, suitable for wake model validation studies. The company notes volume two should be available before the end of this year
