Argestes is an internal web application for ITER SA, which calculates an estimation of the generation and consumption of electricity produced by Wind Farms in ITER.
Argestes uses the wind forecast provided by Teide-HPC supercomputer-based WRF software to make their predictions every day. The research model and forecast (Weather Research and Forecasting-WRF-) system is a mesoscale numerical prediction of a new generation, designed to serve operational needs forecasting and study of the atmosphere.
The results obtained are presented to the user through dashboards. The user can easily compare the current values of energy production and consumption and the predicted.
