WISDEM FLORISSE 'release version'
This version is intended to provide a ''lean'' version of the WISDEM FLORISSE model, based on the OpenMDAO model structure. We will be adding more features and examples in the near future.
-- Installation / requirements --
This release version of WISDEM FLORIS-SE requires OpenMDAO 0.13 to be installed. OpenMDAO 0.13 can be downloaded at: http://openmdao.org/downloads/archive/ This version of FLORISSE is not compatible with earlier or later versions of OpenMDAO.
-- Example scripts --
The example script FLORISvsSOWFA.py gives an example of a FLORIS-SE run with some default parameter settings, and compares the result to the SOWFA power results as obtained in the paper:
P. Fleming, P. Gebraad, S. Lee, J.W. van Wingerden, K. Johnson, M. Churchfield, J. Michalakes, P. Spalart, and P. Moriarty.Simulation comparison of wake mitigation control strategies for a two-turbine case. Wind Energy, 2014.
In addition to Python packages already required by OpenMDAO (Numpy, Scipy, Matplotlib) this example requires the Pickle package.
