basic wind speed

basic wind speed

The wind speed that is used in determining wind load on a structure before other factors (such as height above the ground and the effects of shielding) are taken into account.

Estimation of Basic Wind Speed at Bridge Construction Site Based on Short-term Measurements.
The AEP have increased in case 2 and case 3; the AEP of case 2 increased approximately 0.135%, and the AEP has nothing to do with increasing the value of the basic wind speed. The AEP of case 3 increased the most, the AEP increased about 0.581% and high wind speed annual energy production increased value slightly more, and small wind speed annual energy production increased with slightly lower values.
In this paper, the wind speed outputs from the WRF simulation are used for future power assessment; calculations indicate that the WRF-based power assessment is far more accurate than the evaluations from the basic wind speed distributions when considering the total power production of a local farm.
