WAsP 12 Losses


Recommended Posts

Good morning, 

I would like to gain a better understanding of the losses that WAsP takes into account. I know that there's the wake effect but what are the rest? And What models to you use to calculate them?

Thank you in advance 🙂

Hi Lidia, 

Here (https://www.wasp.dk/wasp/calculation-of-wind-farm-production), you will find information on how the Annual Energy Production (AEP) is calculated in WAsP:
Annual energy production + Wake losses —> Net annual energy production of entire wind farm
For further details about the wake model being utilized, please refer to this link: https://www.wasp.dk/wasp/wake-effect-model

If you need to calculate AEP that includes technical losses and uncertainty, you can utilize the Windfarm Assessment Tool (WAT) provided in the WAsP Bundle.

Best regards,
