Short summary
The possibility to estimate the resulting DVOR bearing error caused by multiple WTs summating the known errors of the particular WTs is investigated. The linear addition is found to be not suitable for use as a worst case estimation. Good estimations are achieved by the geometrical addition in proximal operation distances. In general bearing errors are decreasing with rising distance of WT and analysis point from DVOR. So the estimations can be interpreted as a kind of worst case values.
