RESPR Atmospheric Simulation Technology is based on a meso-microscale amospheric model called Regional Atmospheric Modeling System (RAMS). James Stalker first started applying this model in 1991 as a graduate student at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. He has either tested, applied, or further developed with this model over the last nineteen (19) years. However, Dr. Stalker’s experience and educational background is in meso-microscale modeling theory than in any specific model such as RAMS.
Our technology in a nutshell: Our technology captures wind forces that are responsible for the observed wind at any site in the world. In other words, wind forces are the causal factors that lead to observed wind. Just by measuring wind, one is limiting his/her ability to determine the overall wind farm wind resource accurately but more importantly, their ability to understand why wind behaves the way it does at their site. Wind flow models present an alternative to capturing such wind forces as measurements do not attempt to measure these critical wind forces. However, such models differ from one another in how many wind forces they can capture and how well such models capture wind force variability in time and space. For example, some wind flow models may capture one wind force or none at all while another model may capture many of the relevant wind forces. Depending on their capability to capture wind forces, such models may produce various levels of accuracy in wind information. More robust models that capture more wind forces lead to better accuracy but also require more computational effort and expertise. Our Wind Forces Atmospheric Simulation Technology based wind flow model is of the latter kind. Contact us for more details!
