EMD WAsP CFD Subscriptions in windPRO

Flexible, fast and cost-effective access to run CFD calculations directly in windPRO
The EMD WAsP CFD subscription is a unique service for companies wishing to have continuous and flexible access to run high- resolution CFD calculations without any investments in own software, computer resources or in-house expertise. The service is available at very attractive prices directly from windPRO. Calculations are executed on the EMD High Performance Computer (HPC) Cluster using the WAsP CFD model developed by DTU.

The EMD WAsP CFD subscriptions are offered as annual subscriptions at fixed prices with a specified number of WAsP CFD calculation credits included.

Each WAsP CFD calculation credit allows you to make a CFD calculation for a tile of 2 km x 2 km on the EMD HPC cluster. The tiles are easily defined in windPRO. A complete WAsP CFD calculation for a “standard” project site will typically require three to six tiles, depending of the project size. The CFD results are usually delivered to your computer within a few hours after the calculation has been submitted to the EMD HPC cluster.

It is important to mention that when submitting a WAsP CFD calculation to the EMD HPC cluster, you are only sending terrain and roughness data, no confidential site wind measurements have to be sent to the cluster.

How does it work?

All WAsP CFD calculation credits included in an EMD WAsP CFD annual subscription are added to your user account at the beginning of the subscription and can be used throughout the entire subscription period according to the weekly limitations of use shown in the price table.

The EMD WAsP CFD subscriptions have been designed to give the subscriber flexibility to run CFD calculations for both large and small project sizes and will also enable you to handle unexpected project work without having to change your subscription.

Unused WAsP CFD calculation credits will expire at the end of the subscription and cannot be carried forward to a new subscription.
