If I have an affected sensor, how do I interpret my data?

Recommended Posts

Q: If I have an effected sensor, how do I interpret my data? Do I scrap my existing data? Should I manipulate my data? What does NRG recommend doing to ensure reliable and accurate wind measurement data right now?

A: The data should still be analyzed and scrutinized as one would normally do. Although additional uncertainty may exist, it can be accounted for and should be considered in the context of other sources of uncertainty (e.g. reference data, MCP methods, modeling, tower configuration, long term variability). We do not recommend any wholesale changes to equipment deployment and we continue to recommend installing sensor pairs at each level. It?s important to remember that, in most cases, sensor dragging leads to an under-reporting of wind speed, not an over-reporting.
