ExaWind Software Suite
ExaWind software is an open-source suite of codes that runs on exascale-class computers and simulates wind turbines and wind farms, helping researchers and engineers test ideas prior to development.
NREL developed the Exawind software to:
- Demonstrate ways of understanding wind plant physics and reducing wind plant inefficiencies
- Generate simulation data to empower next-generation design tools
- Provide software tools to drive disruptive wind energy generation technology innovations.
The ExaWind blade-resolved model shows progress toward exascale capabilities.
The software suite can be accessed via a GitHub repo.
