|Title : PARAMETERISATION OF TURBULENCE INTENSITY
Authors : Kurt S. Hansen and Gunner Chr. Larsen
In order to continue cost-optimization of modern large wind turbines it is
important continuously to increase the knowledge on wind field parameters relevant to design
loads. This paper contains a parametrisation of the turbulence intensity at given sites, relevant for
fatigue loading of wind turbines. The parameterisation is based on wind speed measurements
extracted from the “Database on Wind Characteristics” (www.winddata.com). The
parameterisation has been based on the LogNormal distribution, which has proven to be a
suitable distribution to discribe the turbulence intensity distribution.
