Faster way of placing turbines


Recommended Posts

I'm currently designing a very big park, and I want to place lots of turbines quickly. I also want to tweak and adjust the layout by moving/rotating whole arrays to optimise production. But I find WAsP a bit intimidating to work with in this issue. As far as I know, there are two ways to place turbines. By entering coordinates, or by ctrl-dragging. And I can't seem to mark and ctrl-drag several turbines at once.

For a software with this calculation potential, is there no easier way to "design" the layout? What method are you guys using to quickly place multiple arrays in correct alignment?

For anyone wondering the same thing. I found a more efficient way by creating the layout externally in QGIS. There I made a grid of points in a vector layer on my map which can be easily rotated and manipulated. I then exported the coordinates, then copying and pasting into WAsP using the "insert sites from the clipboard" feature from the right click menu in a wind farm.
