Wind assessment at Y Foel, Powys

Technical Report:

Abstract

This report describes the estimation of the hourly annual mean wind speed (AMWS) for Yfoel, Mid Wales. The results also include analysis of turbulence intensity, gust factor and wind shear for the monitored site. As there was a long delay in obtaining planning permission to erect the mast to the full 25 m height, the mast was initially installed to half of its height. The site measurements were made from a 25 m guyed tubular mast which is at a height of approximately 490 m above sea level. The surrounding area is characterised by a ridge feature running on a north-west, south-east axis and is immediately adjacent to the Wye Valley some 200 m below. (author)
