Wind Resource Assessment

What Is a Wind Resource Assessment?

Accurate wind resource assessment plays a critical role in developing successful wind farms. To evaluate site feasibility and automate your analysis and report generation requirements, you may need to perform the following tasks:

  • Import measured data recorded from a wind data logger
  • Perform data quality assurance tests and correct for erroneous conditions, including sensor icing and overload
  • Visualize wind frequency and turbulence intensity with rose plots
  • Model wind turbine performance at multiple tower heights
  • Share customized reports of wind resource assessment results

For details on a platform to streamline your wind resource assessment, see MATLAB®.
