Understanding and Quantifying Wind Quality

vuwindOne of the primary aspects of developing an effective operational wind farm, both onshore and offshore, is being able to understand and quantify wind quality across the site of interest. This involves the collection of as much information as is reasonable over a given timeframe, from a range of points horizontally and vertically across the area. The information gathered can be from a range of sources, in different formats and communicated by a variety of methods. It therefore poses a challenge not only to the site developers but also, in due course, to the financiers and lenders who are making investment decisions on the basis of the data collected. However, overcoming this challenge result in a large amount of very valuable data, ultimately leading to finance-grade wind resource assessment for the wind farm.
