Title: Wind Turbine Radar Interference Mitigation (WTRIM) Modeling & Simulation Tools Catalog

Abstract

Wind energy development in the United States has been steadily growing over the past decade. This trend has resulted in the expansion of wind energy into areas that have a good wind resource but may have other deployment barriers being looked at more closely. One such barrier is that of the potential impact that wind turbines pose to radar systems. Wind turbines located within the line-of-sight of radar systems can cause clutter and interference and can result in performance degradation. Mitigation of any interference that wind turbines have on radar systems begins with the understanding of the potential those impacts to radar systems through modeling and simulation. The intent of this document is to catalog and provide the reader with a list of the modeling and simulation capabilities along with enabling databases for wind turbine — radar interference and related issues that are currently in use in various government agencies as well as those tools that are available to the public for free or fee. A brief description of the tool is given along with other pertinent characteristics of the tool including the owner, developers, user, classification, status, and the point-of-contact. This document does not provide an exhaustive description ofmore » the tools' capabilities nor does it include tools that were developed privately.« less
