Dataset Open Access
This dataset is used in Chapter 4 of the Data Science for Wind Energy book. The data used in this study consists of one year of spatio-temporal measurements at 200 randomly selected turbines on a flat terrain inland wind farm, between 2010 and 2011. The data consists of turbine-specific hourly wind speeds measured by the anenometers mounted on each turbine. In addition, one year of hourly wind speed and direction measurements are available at three met masts on the same wind farm. Column B through Column OK are the wind speed and wind power associated with each turbine, followed by Column OL through Column OQ, which are for wind speed and wind direction associated with each mast. The coordinates of the turbines and masts are listed in the top rows, preceding the wind speed, direction, and power data. The coordinates are shifted by a constant, so that while the relative positions of the turbines and the met masts remain faithful to the actual layout, their true geographic information is kept confidential. This anemometer network provides a coverage of a spatial resolution of one mile and a temporal resolution of one hour.
