No more remote Desktops

As the number of wind farms around the world continues to grow, the complexity of calculating wake efficiency is becoming increasingly challenging due to the sheer volume of data and the intricate interactions between numerous wind turbines.

The North Sea is an excellent example of this, where it is now not uncommon to need to include more than 1000 WTG locations when calculating wake losses for a prospective wind farm.

This is a large modelling challenge which takes up computer processing time and often is difficult to run in parallel with many platforms only allowing a user to run one calculation at a time per computer. On top of that, you might not be able to even answer your emails with your laptop running at a snail's pace as all available processing power is taken over by the calculations.

With Youwind, you are not limited to a single run for a single computer. You can calculate wake losses for multiple wind farm scenarios simultaneously, with the simulations running on our servers rather than yours. 

All this while keeping the collaboration advantages of remote desktops. Everyone in your team will have access to the same data and the same scenarios, meaning that Youwind encourages and facilitates real-time collaboration among different team members. Multiple users can access and work on different wind farm scenarios concurrently, enhancing productivity and teamwork.   

As Youwind runs out of your browser of choice, you are only limited by how many tabs you are willing to have open on your browser simultaneously. 

All results are saved and automatically updated in your results tables with no further effort required. By implementing this, efficiency is increased, and the potential for human error is reduced, thereby improving reliability.  Consequently, this saves the user even more time, allowing them to start interpreting the results immediately and make informed decisions with greater confidence.
