Demonstrating measure-correlate-predict algorithms for estimation of wind resources in central Finland
In this study, measure-correlate-predict (MCP) algorithms - Simple Linear Regression and Variance Ratio Methods - for predicting wind speed were studied. The MCP algorithms were successfully used to predict missing wind speeds at two sites in Jyväskylä and Viitasaari, respectively. These two algorithms used data from one of the site to predict missing wind speed data at the other site. The results obtained using the MCP methods were compared using metrics that showed the characteristics of the predicted data to be unbiased compared to measured data. From the data of this study, we also evaluated wind power density at both sites which categorized the local wind resources as poor since the determined wind power densities were less than 100 W/m2.
