SAM Crashes Using Downloaded .srw Files

Hello,

I am in a renewable energy systems course at the University of Wisconsin and many, possibly all, of my classmates and I are having this same issue. Our assignment asked us to download 2012 NREL WIND toolkit data for a specific zip code (53597) and the data successfully saves to the computer. The file directory looks good and everything. However, once you hit "Simulate," SAM immediately crashes. This is an issue affecting both Macs and PCs.

I have attached my .sam file in case it helps troubleshoot this issue. Thanks for your help!

Best,

Erik

Converting Wind Toolkit Data to SRW

Hi,

I am trying to write a python script for wind, with a workflow similar to the solar example shown here:
https://nsrdb.nrel.gov/api-instructions

The workflow would be:
1. Download resource data for a desired lat/lon, using the NREL API
2. Simulate power output for a desired turbine type using the SCCAPI module

could not check hub height compared to resource height - Wind Turbine

Dear SAM Team

I am trying to simulate Wind using SAM version 2017.1.17 but I get the notification said "Could not check hub height compared to resource height. This may indicate a problem with your weather file".

I have changed my file to the Windows (CR/LF) or Unix (LF) format but I still face the error.
Here I attached my file (80m.srw). Please take a look.

My appreciate for some advices.

Best regards,
Soares

Hybrid System (Wind+PV)

How can we define and simulate Hybrid (Wind + PV) system ? Using wind and solar system together in a unit system can reduce the size of the battery or storage system. This reduce the cost of the project.

Wind

Dear Paul

Do you know any resource (website or etc) which has California wind farms information such as Turbine, Lay out and size of the system?
for solar there is https://www.californiasolarstatistics.ca.gov/data_downloads something similar for wind.

Integration of Solar PV and wind in the same model

I am a new user of SAM. Just wondering, is it possible to develop a hybrid model by using both PV and wind in the same model at SAM.

NREL AWS Truepower representative wind file

Hi

I am trying to understand how the NREL AWS Truepower representative wind file is built. Can already be considered an average of wind dataset in that specific area? If so, any clue of how big was the original sample?

Read srw correctly

Hi Paul,

I am trying to read a srw wind weather file in SAM store in my laptop. I am using OX. These are the steps I followed:

Generic storage for Wind farm

Hi dear developers of SAM,

I'd like to simulate the impact of a storage technology on the output (financial & power) of a wind farm. However, I haven't found if it was possible to add storage to a wind project. I found this option in PV project but here, it was specifically for inverters.

Have I missed something, or do you think it's even possible ?
