MEGAJOULE Inovação announces results of the ongoing WindieTM Validation Programme


PORTO, PT – MEGAJOULE|Inovação released results of the ongoing Windie™ Validation Programme.  In its commitment to provide an increasingly better service to its clients, MEGAJOULE|Inovação performs continuing validation studies of its CFD results.  In its “Windie™ White Paper 2010/11”, the company presents results of 38 comparisons between Windie™ results and measured wind data, on 5 sites on 4 different countries.  The sites vary from simple to complex terrain, with and without forest cover.  The programme, focussed on resource assessment results, includes comparisons with real wind farm production data and with SODAR measured wind profiles.  Windie™ results are shown to outperform predictions obtained with WAsP and another wind engineering CFD tool.
Windie™’s validation programme is continuously growing and an additional White Paper will be released soon concerning the validation of site assessment results.

Carlos Silva Santos, Manager at MEGAJOULE|Inovação, states that, “it is easy to claim one solution is better than another based on little or no data.  At MEGAJOULE|Inovação, we place enormous importance on our Windie™ Validation Programme, for two main reasons: to help us improve Windie™ and to demonstrate to our clients the benefits they can obtain by using our solutions.  With each site we study, the validation programme grows and so does our confidence in Windie™’s performance.”

MEGAJOULE, as Portuguese market leader in wind assessment, is strongly committed to promote alternative and sustainable energy solutions. MEGAJOULE’S core business is wind assessment, but there is a wide range of technical services MEGAJOULE offers from advanced flow simulation (CFD and mesoscale) to power performance tests and independent project due diligence. Acting globally MEGAJOULE also provides advice on solar PV projects. In addition to the creation of the innovation branch MEGAJOULE|Inovação, MEGAJOULE has opened offices in Brazil and Poland in the beginning of this year.
