Design, Sizing, and Cost Tools

The design, sizing, performance and cost tools may be used as stand-alone models for the analysis of various sub-systems within a wind plant or can be used as part of an overall integrated system model in Wind-Plant Integrated System Design and Engineering Model (WISDEM™).  WISDEM™ is developed largely at the NWTC and is hosted on this website along with all of the contributing sub-models.  For additional information about the NWTC effort in systems engineering that supports WISDEM development, please visit the official NREL systems engineering for wind energy website.
