Design/manufacturing optimization (wind farm layout optimization)

Automate design operations using simulators.

  • Automates wind farm layout design, considering cable connection costs, topography, distance, and strong winds occurring once every 50 years.
  • Uses simulation optimization technology to simultaneously maximize energy production and minimize cable connection costs.
  • Contributes to reducing design time for wind farm layout and increasing energy production.


  • Wind farm layout design operations
  • Can also be used to resolve problems in which optimum parameters or combinations are determined through repeated trial and error.

Benchmarks, strengths, and track record

  • Enables design of layout with greater energy production in less time, compared to engineers spending several hours in design.
  • Currently in trials as a design tool
