Wind Resource Mapping Of Sweden Using The Miuu-Model
2007 (English)Report (Other scientific)
A method to simulate the climatological wind field using the MIUU-model (Meteorological Institute Uppsala University model) has been developed at Uppsala University, reducing the total number of simulations needed. With this method a limited number of climato¬logically relevant simulations are performed, with different wind and temperature conditions, and a weighting based on climato¬logi¬cal data for the geostrophic wind (horizontal pressure gradient) is made in order to fi¬nally estimate the wind climate. The method is applicable for mapping the wind resources with a resolution of 0.5-10 km. To use this method geostrophic wind (strength and direction), sea and land temperatures, topography, roughness, and land use are needed. No observed boundary-layer winds are needed other than for verification. Comparisons between model results and measurements show good agreement.
