Processor, Memory:The recommended minimum specification for running the WindFarmer Base with Optimiser, Turbulence, Electrical and Finance Modules is a current CPU running at 2 GHz with 2 GB of RAM on board. For large or complex projects a Quad-Core CPU and 8 GB of RAM is recommended.
Graphics and Screen Resolution:The monitor resolution will need to be 1024 x 768 or higher to avoid some panels not being shown fully on the screen. A graphics card with 256 MB dedicated memory is recommended. The graphics card and its driver should support OpenGL. Please ensure that you have a recent driver installed.
Disk space:Depending on the size of site data files being analysed, users should have between 2 GB and 4 GB free hard disk space. Use of the MCP+ Module is likely to require several GB of storage for raw data and WindFarmer data files.
Ports:A USB port is required for the software authentication device (dongle). A second USB port may be required for the software authentication device of the wind flow modelling software WAsP.
64 bit versions of Windows 8™ and Windows 7™ are supported.
To run the WAsP flow model from within WindFarmer a valid licence of WAsP 10 or later is required on the same computer running WindFarmer.
Some functions require MS Office 2007™ (MS Word™ and MS Excel™ packages) or later to be installed on the computer.
