July 26 -- IBERDROLA and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center - Centro Nacional de Supercomputación (BSC-CNS), are jointly developing a major R&D&I initiative known as the 'Sedar Project (High Resolution Wind Simulation)'.
SEDAR is an innovative project aimed at developing a new computer model to improve estimates of electrical energy production in windfarms before their construction.
Current models have a significant limitation in their calculation times, and this project has succeeded in overcoming this shortcoming through the use of supercomputing techniques. Furthermore, the project will develop improvements for the resolution of physical models which, so far, have been constrained by computing times.
In the initial stage, already being tested, the project will design new windfarms that can be deployed with greater guarantees, as it will provide the most suitable locations for installing the wind turbines and reduce the uncertainty involved in investing in this type of study. This phase of the project, which is done using Alya Green software, can be applied in future onshore and offshore wind farms.
For the Sedar Project, IBERDROLA and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center are using Spain's most important supercomputer, the MareNostrum, one of the most powerful in the world. Both organisations have agreed to carry out the development of the model and its subsequent deployment in IBERDROLA's new windfarm projects in the facilities of the BCS-CNS.
