Just a few years ago wind resource assessment was a relatively basic exercise. Studies were based on low-quality measurement data, not always from certified equipment and often with met mast heights that took no account of future hub heights. No long-term correction was applied and simplified flow models were used to estimate the resource beyond the met mast positions. Such limitations at this important phase of wind project development resulted in high uncertainty about production and a potential increase in costs over the lifetime of a project. It is clear that assessment of the wind regime and the corresponding annual energy production (AEP) are highly important for the viability of a planned wind farm.
