Collaboration Aims to More Accurately Predict Wind Farm Flow Physics

Jennifer Huber of the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center (NERSC) writes about how ExaWind, an effort within the US Department of Energy’s Exascale Computing Project (ECP), is advancing our basic understanding of the flow physics that govern wind-plant performance.

ExaWind is a collaboration between the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Sandia National Laboratories, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, the University of Texas at Austin, Parallel Geometric Algorithms, and—as of a few months ago—Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
