Field station Frøya
We conduct full scale experimentation on wind and wind turbines out in the field on field station Frøya.
- The VIVA Wind Turbine Test Site at Valsneset, Bjugn
- The NTNU Wind Measurement Station at Titran, Frøya. Two 100-meter + one 45-meter Met-mast at the Skipheia measuring station + one 45-meter mast at the Sletningen islet.
- Efficiency of 3 MW Wind Turbines
- Wind characteristics e.g. duration and spatial size of Wind Gusts
Case: big storm "Ivar"
The big storm "Ivar" visited Valsneset in Dec 2013. Blue curves give 10-min averages measured at 11 heights using a LiDAR. Red curves give max speed within each 10-min interval.
Measured wind speed on the abscissa, and probability on the ordinate, with curve-fit using the Weibull distribution.
