The PRISMI Wind Power Calculator Tool

The PRISMI Wind Calculator tool calculates the expected wind power output, in the form of a yearly long hourly time series for sites in the Mediterranean islands.

As part of the methodology proposed in the framework of PRISMI the use of a Wind Power calculator tool has been developed. The scope of the tool is to deliver yearly wind power time series for energy planning calculations. 


The tool is based on the NASA MERRA open database for wind speeds at specific heights with discretization in space of 0.5~0.667deg and in time of 1 hour. The data used for PRISMI cover the period from 1997 to 2015. In parallel information from regional wind atlases and yearly wind speed measurements can be used for reducing the uncertainty of the estimations.


PRISMI Wind Calculator tool has been developed by the Centre of Renewable Energy Sources and Saving (CRES) and is distributed free of charge after filling in the PRISMI Network Registration Form 
and sending it to the Project Coordinator:
