I am pursuing a science project involving wind power, and am looking for some data on wind speeds, directions, and ideally turbulence and shear.
Do you know where I could find this? I would need to be able to download a file of this data that can be used in the programming language MATLAB.
So far I have found these two sources:
- 50-meter wind from National Renewable Energy Laboratory
- NOAA Federal Climate Complex Integrated Surface Data Inventory
Do you think these would suit my purpose? I am trying to predict wind turbine energy output based on speed, direction, and/or turbulence and shear.
