Higher-order closure meso-scale modelling for wind resource estimates in Sweden
2004 (English)In: 2004 European Wind Energy Conference and Exhibition, 2004Conference paper (Other scientific)
The wind climate over Sweden is investigated using the three-dimensional higher-order closure MIUU-model from Uppsala University. A technique for estimating the wind resource with this type of model is presented, and the resulting wind climate is verified against measurements.
Statistics of the geostrophic wind is used for weighting model output together into the final wind climate. Comparisons are made between estimates of geostrophic wind from observed surface pressure data, and from ERA40/NCEP reanalysis sea level pressure data and 850 hPa geopotential height data.
The results presented are based on data from an ongoing project aiming at mapping the wind climate over Sweden on a 1 km horizontal resolution, but here only results on a 5 km horizontal resolution are presented.
