A2e - MMC - Tower - TTU (SWiFT) Tower, All levels - Processed Data


Atmosphere to Electrons (A2e) is a new, multi-year, multi-stakeholder U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research and development initiative tasked with improving wind plant performance and mitigating risk and uncertainty to achieve substantial reduction in the cost of wind energy production.

The A2e strategic vision will enable a new generation of wind plant technology, in which smart wind plants are designed to achieve optimized performance stemming from more complete knowledge of the inflow wind resource and complex flow through the wind plant.

Project: Mesoscale-Microscale Coupling

This model performance study features several federally funded U.S. laboratories collaborating on various mesoscale and microscale model simulations and assessments to establish a validated model for the inflow conditions at the Scaled Wind Farm Technology Facility (SWiFT), located at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas. The collected field data observed at SWiFT display ranges of atmospheric behaviors. The project spans March 2015 through September 2018.

Dataset Overview

This dataset includes processed sonic anemometer measurements at the 200-m SWIFT tower near Lubbock, Texas on July 4, 2012. Observations are of a canonical convective atmospheric boundary layer. Subgrid stresses and fluxes are computed by subtracting 15-min running average from the signals measured at 1 Hz.
