AWS Truepower, a provider of renewable energy consulting and information services, has upgraded its openWind Enterprise wind project design and optimization software.

Among other features, AWS says the new edition incorporates the latest IEC recommendations on effects of turbulence and shear on turbine output; the ability to use wind profiles to 200 meters from SODAR, LIDAR and tall towers; and expanded environmental analysis including time-series modeling of shadow flicker and improved noise modeling and reporting.

"This upgrade is aimed squarely at handling complex sites with very large turbines - just the type of situation our Enterprise customers are increasingly facing," says Michael Brower, chief technical officer at AWS Truepower. "I think our customers will be delighted with the new capabilities, many of which respond to their urgent requests in dealing with real-world projects.”
