As a countermeasure against global warming, a substantial reduction in CO2 emissions has become an urgent issue. Accordingly, the effective use of wind power energy is attracting attention as a clean and environmentally friendly solution. Given this background, we have developed RIAM-COMPACT【○!R】 (Research Institute for Applied Mechanics, Kyushu University, COMputational Prediction of Airflow over Complex Terrain, a non-stationary, non-linear wind synopsis simulator that is capable of predicting the optimum sites for wind turbine construction to the pin-point level within a target area of a few km or less. In this study, a high resolution micro-siting of 100kW wind-lens turbines was performed under neutral stability in the new campus of Kyushu University.
