Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Software tool for the analysis of potential impact of wind farms on radiocommunication services ' The prediction of the potential impact of a wind farm on the existing radiocommunication services before its installation allows the planning of alternative solutions to ensure the coexistence of wind energy and telecommunication facilities. Although some guidelines for safeguarding radiocommunication services have been recently published, the precise impact on a specific service can only be determined on a case-by-case basis, due to the multiple factors that must be considered in the analysis. This paper presents a software tool that allows the accurate analysis of the degradation of the different radiocommunication systems. The calculations are based on the configuration of a specific wind farm and the different transmitters and receivers over a terrain database containing high resolution altimetry data. For each type of service, suitable calculation algorithms and interference criteria are applied. Graphic and numerical results of the analysis are presented on a map, which allows an on-the-spot evaluation of the degradation mechanisms for each wind turbine.
