Database of Wind Characteristics
More than 195.000 hours of wind speed measurements representing 62 sites.
6500 hours of structural wind turbine response measurements, representing seven different wind turbines ranging from 300 - 2.750 kW.
More than 1.000.000 hours of wind resource measurements, representing 40 different sites with a maximum period of 14 years.
More than 19.000 hours of windfarm measurements, from two different windfarms in UK & DK.
Meteorological and structurel measurements from the 500kW Nordtank wind turbine located at DTU-Risø Campus, used in DTU course 46400: Wind Turbine Measurement Technique
This database contains four different categories of wind data: time series of wind characteristics, time series of wind turbine responses, wind resource data and wind farm data. These time series are primarily intended for wind [turbine] design purposes and the resource data can be used for siting analysis. In the database you will find wind speed measurements, measured under different conditions and terrain types at 55 different locations inside Europe, Egypt, Japan, Mexico, Costa Rico and United States.
The database is compiled and maintained in Denmark by Kurt S. Hansen, together with Gunner C. Larsen at the Department of Wind Energy, DTU.
