Abstract [en]

Optimization of wind farm layout is an expensive and complex task involving several engineering challenges. The layout of any wind farm directly impacts profitability and return of investment. Several software optimization modules in line with wind farm design tools in industry is currently attempting to place the turbines in locations with good wind resources while adhering to the constraints of a defined objective function. Assessment of these software tools needs to be performed clearly for assessing different tools in wind farm layout design process. However, there is still not a clear demonstration of benchmarking and comparison of these software tools even for simple test cases. This work compares two different optimization software namely openWind and WindPRO commercial software tools mutually.
