In this study, a metamodel of an optimal arrangement of wind turbines was developed to maximize the energy produced by minimizing the energy loss due to wakes in a limited space when designing a wind farm. Metamodeling or surrogate modeling techniques are often used to replace expensive simulations or physical experiments of engineering problems. Given a training set, you can construct a set of metamodels. This metamodel provided insight into the correlation between wind farm geometry and the

In addition, a design support Microsoft Excel program was developed to quickly and easily calculate the annual energy production forecast considering the wake effect, as well as to confirm the prediction suitability, the annual energy production (AEP) analysis result of the wind farm, and the calculation result from existing commercial software were compared and verified.
