Spatial coherence and decay of wind speed and power in the north-central United States

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Hourly wind data from a network of climate stations in the north-central United States (drawn from the states of Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin) are analyzed to evaluate the efficacy of spatial analyses of near-surface wind speed and power. Spatial autocorrelation functions calculated at a number of timescales : annual, monthly, daily, hourly, and mean absolute differences are used to characterize the spatial coherence and decay of wind speed and power. Methods for improving the spatial analysis of wind also are discussed
