DNV GL (legacy GL Garrad Hassan) offers this one-day introduction course to WindFarmer. The course gives a basic understanding of the software: its functionality, main calculation abilities and operation. This is achieved through a day of hands-on guided use of the software, incorporating example cases.

Areas of WindFarmer covered in this course: MCP+ Module: Use of measured wind data, Measure Correlate Predict; Base Module: Energy calculation, Turbine representation, Noise modelling, Optimisation, Report generation; Visualisation Module: Basic visualisation and animation, ZVI - Zones of visual influence; Shadow Flicker Module.

It builds on the Wind Farm Design course, taking the methodologies discussed and applying them. It can also stand alone as a day of training introducing the user to WindFarmer. The courses can be taken consecutively, as the Wind Farm Design course is planned the day before the Introduction course to WindFarmer begins.
For experienced users of WindFarmer we also offer the course Advanced Use of WindFarmer Software.
