WindDataSuite allows the calculation of the site energy yield and the site quality of a wind turbine (for a 5-years operation period) according to the Technical Guideline 10 (TG 10, published by FGW e.V. Berlin) in just a few steps.

WindDataSuite implements the outstanding new Measure Correlate Predict method MSSCP (Multiple Synoptic Scale Correlate Predict). MSSCP is the, by WIND DATA SUiTE developed, Measure Correlate Predict method for the long-term extrapolation of short-term wind measurements. MSSCP is based on the evaluation of the wind field variability on the synoptic scale.

WindDataSuite implements an outstanding method for automatically removing data spikes. The mathematical algorithm is based on digital filters and is reliable, objective, and extremely fast.

WindDataSuite implements the design and application of digital filters. With WindDataSuite, you can design low-pas, high-pass, band-pass, and inverse band-pass filters and you can apply these onto the wind data. With digital filters, you can uncover certain signals in the frequency domain as, for example, the daily variability or the 1-year variability.

WindDataSuite is the enormously flexible. There are no fixed templates. At any time, you may select which data parameter you want to be displayed and processed, and which modules for data processing and data evaluation you want to apply.

Some of the many other features of WindDataSuite:
