FLORIS: FLOw Redirection and Induction in Steady State
FLOw Redirection and Induction in Steady State (FLORIS) is a wind plant optimization tool developed by NREL and the Delft University of Technology.
NREL's capabilities in wind farm control span the process of designing, implementing, and validating wind farm controllers.
The open-source FLORIS platform is available for download and collaborative development. In addition, NREL's flow control experts are accessible to academia, manufacturers, developers, and small businesses through multiple partnering formats.
NREL uses the FLORIS tool to help our partners develop site-specific, optimized flow control strategies that increase productivity.
NREL's real-time wind farm control strategies enable entire plants to adjust to changing wind directions and other conditions via data sharing among turbines.
Our performance analysis capabilities demonstrate the impacts of implementing controls and identify potential areas for improvement.
