A graph database for the offshore wind farm domain

More Info


The construction and management of an offshore wind farm involves many disciplines, e.g. meteorology and economics. It is hard for a single researcher to keep an overview of all the relevant concepts, models, and tools from these disciplines. Nevertheless, this is needed when performing integrated modeling or analysis in the offshore wind farm domain. To help researchers keep this overview, we present OWFgraph, a knowledge base for the offshore wind farm domain, implemented as a graph database that is meant to be open and ever-improving.
A graph database stores content in nodes and relationships. A relationship is a directed edge between two nodes. In our implementation, each of the nodes and relationships can have multiple properties, i.e., key-value pairs; moreover, nodes can have multiple labels, whereas relationships have only a single type.
