AL-PRO has developed a mesoscale weather prediction model
delivered with GLOBAL MICROCASTING SYSTEM – GMS, a system that includes a self
learning component to improve turbine specific forecasts. GMS PROFIWIND is a
product specifically tailored to the needs of the wind industry with detailed
forecast data for the boundary layer which includes precise wind speed, direction
and gust data. The forecast data is so precise, that implementation within pilot
sites situated in complex terrain has shown very small variations in regards to
wind flow and yield forecasts.
GMS PROFIWIND provides hourly or finer wind, wind yield and weather forecasts with a very high accuracy for several days.
To verify the quality of GMS PROFIWIND forecasts and further refine the components of GMS PROFIWIND, a four month trial was started on April 1, 2015 which included actual wind and yield data from 16 German wind farms. The results have been published in a report available here: gms_yield_study_2015-eng.pdf
