I hope this finds you well.
I have a query regarding the use of the FastFarm Python toolbox. I used it recently to create a Python script that prepares and executes TurbSim and FastFarm input files in “Mod_AmbWind = 3” mode. I am able to generate low-resolution TurbSim boxes and extract high-resolution boxes from them using the toolbox. ;/./ver, there appears to be a problem in matching FastFarm’s low- and high-resolution domains with their corresponding TurbSim domains. The issue is that TurbSim and FastFarm’s domains do not match when utilizing the toolbox. The tools seem to be creating a similarly sized TurbSim and FastFarm high-resolution domains for each turbine, but when defining the boxes’ origins in the “.fstf” file, there is this restriction where for example Y0_High must be an integer multiple of DT_High. This requirement is likely causing the FastFarm domains to be misaligned with TurbSim’s, and I am receiving an error message when running FastFarm.
The error message:
- What do you recommend to avoid this issue?
- Do TurbSim and FastFarm domains have to be the same size or can FastFarm domains be smaller?
Please see attachments below.
