Obstruction Manager

The WRAP Obstruction Manager tool enables the user to analyse how much a wind turbine or a mast disturbs a nearby radar station.

The tool calculates the signal-to-interference ratio caused by the wind turbine or the mast and compares it against the signal-to-interference ratio required by the radar receiver. In order to calculate the interference caused by the wind turbine or the mast the tool first calculates the radar cross section. The influence of group effects from large wind turbine farms is considered.
