Abstract [en]

In this thesis I find a function for how

Gross Annual Energy Production per square

meter of rotor area depends on wind data

from the MIUU Mesoscale Atmospheric

Model. The result can be used in the

early stages of the process of finding a

suitable site for a new wind farm. The

relationship is found by looking at 325

wind turbines in Sweden and calculating

the GAEP/m2 and plotting it against the

wind speed given by MIUU. The final

function is given by a linear regression

and is stated in the equation below:

GAEP/m2 = -576.96 + 209.18*MIUU

Wind farm producers will be able to get a

estimate of the GAEP by using the

equation and the easily available data

from the MIUU-model and can then make a

shortlist of possible locations for the

new turbines.
