WindSim AS Launches Powerful GCV Solver Solution Enabling Cutting Edge Technology Solution to Customers Worldwide

The GCV (General Collocated Velocity) Solver Outperforms All Other Solutions on the Market Today Which Demonstrate Limitations in Complex Terrain Sites; The GCV Solver Represents a Major Upgrade to the WindSim CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) Procedure; Comprised of a New Numerical Scheme, GCV Handles Highly Non-Orthogonal Grids Used in Complex Terrain Situations; This Powerful Technology Makes the CFD Procedure Faster and More Robust Without Compromising on the Accuracy

BOSTON, MA and TONSBERG, NORWAY--(Marketwired - Dec 4, 2013) - WindSim AS, a pioneer and leading provider of CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) technology used to optimize wind turbine placement, wind performance, and bankable AEP, announced the launch of the enhanced GCV solver solution. Results from the use of this advanced technology show maximized wind farm performance; minimized risk, downtime and maintenance cost. Wind park layout optimization has increased the AEP (Annual Energy Production) by 3% to 10%.

John Olaf Romma, CEO of WindSim AS, said, "Our WindSim CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) technology is used to optimize wind turbine placement and performance. Using the WindSim software suite from early concept evaluation, through engineering to operation, secures overall capital and operating cost effectiveness. WindSim AS now strengthens its commitment to the wind resource assessment community by taking the CFD technology to a new level enabling the wind energy industry to maximize return on investments."

Arne R. Gravdahl, Ph.D., Founder and CTO of WindSim AS, said, "Our main target has always been to make the wind simulations as accurate as possible. In the wind energy sector everything drills down to accurate knowledge about the local wind conditions. Today, ten years after the launch of the first WindSim version, we make a major upgrade of our CFD procedure."

WindSim software suite will be demonstrated at AWEA Wind Resource & Project Energy Assessment Seminar December 10 - 11, 2013 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. WindSim Software Training will be held on December 9th at the same location from 10:00AM - 4:00PM.
