Dataset Open Access
Data included in these two datasets are 10-minute data generated from six wind turbines and three met masts and are arranged in six files, each of which is associated with a turbine. The six turbines are named WT1 through WT6, respectively. The layout of the turbines and the met masts is shown in Fig. 5.6 of the Data Science for Wind Energy book. On the offshore wind farm, all seven environmental variables as mentioned above are available, namely x =(V, D, rho, H, I, Sa, Sb), whereas on the inland wind farm, the humidity measurements are not available, nor is the above-hub wind shear, meaning that x =(V, D, rho, I, Sb). Variables in x were measured by sensors on the met mast, whereas y was measured at the wind turbines. Each met mast has two wind turbines associated with it, meaning that the x's measured at a met mast are paired with the y's of two associated turbines. For WT1 and WT2, the data were collected from July 30, 2010 through July 31, 2011 and for WT3 and WT4, the data were collected from April 29, 2010 through April 30, 2011. For WT5 and WT6, the data were collected from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009.
Meaning of variables; V: wind speed; D: wind direction; rho: air density; H: humidity; I: turbulence intensity; S: vertical wind shear; Sa: above-hub height wind shear, Sb: below-hub height wind shear.
