Wind farm control and data analytics

Wind farm control and data analytics
for the holistic optimization of your wind farm

ventodyne helps you boost the productivity of your wind farm with simple, effective, low-cost solutions, based on a smart use of data that you already possess.

Let ventodyne help you make sense of the information hidden in your data, and -together- let’s unleash the potential of your farm!

What is the problem with wakes?

While it converts the kinetic energy of the wind into electricity, a wind turbine releases behind it a region of low speed and high turbulence, called a wake. For some wind directions, wakes from upstream turbines can impact on downstream ones. The reduced wind speed of wakes leads to significant energy losses (up to 20% yield reduction for the whole park), while the higher turbulence may reduce the lifetime of the turbines and/or increase their maintenance costs.

Can the negative effects of wakes be reduced?

The layout of your wind park was hopefully designed taking wakes into account. However, even the best design cannot entirely prevent wake losses. Today there is a clever new technology that can help you boost the productivity of your park. This technology is called wake steering: when necessary, upstream turbines are intentionally slightly misaligned from the incoming wind direction. This results in a lateral displacement of the wake, reducing its impact on the downstream turbines. Typically, the more your park is affected by wake losses, the more wake steering can benefit your business.

To give you some numbers: for wind directions with high wake losses, power at a  downstream turbine can be increased by up to 40%. While the actual annual energy production gains of the park depend on site conditions and layout, in typical situations we can expect to improve yield by up to about 2% (or even more, in case of frequent and strong wake effects).

And if your park has not yet been designed, we can you help you too! With wake steering, your park might occupy a smaller surface area, reducing land costs and simplifying permitting.


Wake steering wind farm control: wind turbine (WT) 1 and WT 2 are intentionally misaligned from the incoming wind. As a consequence, their wakes are steered away from WT 2 and WT 3, and the total wind farm power (WT 1 + WT 2 + WT 3) is maximized.

How difficult is it?

Whether you consider wake steering for retrofitting an existing park or to design a new one, the technology can be implemented with minimum impact. No expensive hardware and no changes to the turbine control system are required. Our solution works with most wind turbines, also from different OEMs within the same park. 
And there is an additional benefit! When we apply wake steering to your park, we take an extremely close look at its performance using advanced data analytics tools. As we do this, we can often detect issues (for example, wind vane calibration offsets, or underperforming turbines) that would otherwise typically go unnoticed. Even if in the end you decide not to implement wake steering, the unprecedented depth of our analysis will give you the opportunity to improve the operation of your park.


We cannot change the wind, but we can help you make the best use of it!

We at ventodyne have a passion for wind farm control and believe in the enormous hidden potential of the data produced daily by your wind turbines. We have been researching these topics for several years through the participation to national and international research projects, publishing our findings in high-impact articles. We have participated in experimental demonstrations of wake steering in the field, at different sites and with different wind turbines. We are now bringing our technology to market, and we are proud to have already tested a commercial wake steering wind farm controller, which continuously increases the energy yield of our client’s wind farm.
