Training and Support

  • Familiarize first-time users with a model"s capabilities
  • Help intermediate users solve specific problems using the model and familiarize them with advanced features.
  • Assist expert users in understanding and interpreting model results and mastering the most advanced features of the model

We typically use a structured course for first-time users to ensure that training covers all of the model"s basic capabilities and prepares training participants to begin working with the model on their own. We provide intermediate and expert level training in a less formal environment so that we can help participants solve specific modeling problems. All of our training is based on a hands-on approach, where you learn by doing. In either case, we are happy to tailor training to your particular needs.

Technical Support

We provide technical support for users of Windographer and HOMER, ranging from troubleshooting problems to providing expert guidance for advanced use of the software. We can review files and technical reports to help find errors or suggest improvements.

The Windographer license fee includes two hours of technical support. Beyond those two hours, we charge US $100/hr for Windographer technical support.

Power System Design

Measured load or renewable resource data sets are sometimes difficult to work with because they may use different time steps or cover a different time period, and often contain gaps or erroneous values. We have extensive experience in finding and developing data on electric load, thermal load, solar, wind, and hydro resources, as well as cost and performance data for the various system components.


Wind Data Analysis

Using Windographer, we can produce graphical reports characterizing the statistics of your wind data, including wind shear patterns, daily and seasonal patterns, wind roses, Weibull distribution parameters, wind power density, and turbulence intensity. We can simulate the performance of one or more wind turbines in the measured wind regime to predict power production, capacity factor, payback, IRR, sensitivity to assumptions, and more.
