could not check hub height compared to resource height - Wind Turbine

Dear SAM Team

I am trying to simulate Wind using SAM version 2017.1.17 but I get the notification said "Could not check hub height compared to resource height. This may indicate a problem with your weather file".

I have changed my file to the Windows (CR/LF) or Unix (LF) format but I still face the error.
Here I attached my file (80m.srw). Please take a look.

My appreciate for some advices.

Best regards,
Soares

Hybrid System (Wind+PV)

How can we define and simulate Hybrid (Wind + PV) system ? Using wind and solar system together in a unit system can reduce the size of the battery or storage system. This reduce the cost of the project.

Wind weather data

Dear Sir/Mdm

I am trying to model wind farm in multiple locations in California, tried to download weather data through NREL and the latest available data was from 2011,Is there any sources that i can download multiple locations weather data (Latest)

Wind

Dear Paul

Do you know any resource (website or etc) which has California wind farms information such as Turbine, Lay out and size of the system?
for solar there is https://www.californiasolarstatistics.ca.gov/data_downloads something similar for wind.

saman

Integration of Solar PV and wind in the same model

I am a new user of SAM. Just wondering, is it possible to develop a hybrid model by using both PV and wind in the same model at SAM.

NREL AWS Truepower representative wind file

Hi

I am trying to understand how the NREL AWS Truepower representative wind file is built. Can already be considered an average of wind dataset in that specific area? If so, any clue of how big was the original sample?

Read srw correctly

Hi Paul,

I am trying to read a srw wind weather file in SAM store in my laptop. I am using OX. These are the steps I followed:

Generic storage for Wind farm

Hi dear developers of SAM,

I'd like to simulate the impact of a storage technology on the output (financial & power) of a wind farm. However, I haven't found if it was possible to add storage to a wind project. I found this option in PV project but here, it was specifically for inverters.

Have I missed something, or do you think it's even possible ?

Regards,

Fabien Chaufournier

Download Wind data by latitude and longitude

Hello,

There is a possibility in SAM desktop application to download a wind resource file from the online NREL WIND Toolkit in .srw format. I need to download these .srw files for the number of locations according to their latitude and longitude. I wonder if there is a possibility to download these files with the help of SDK?

Thank you,
Veranika

Wind Resource at More Hub Heights or Shear Coefficient

Hi,

The downloadable wind resource files from the online NREL WIND Toolkit features only hub height of 100m.
Using those files, I will have to enter a shear coefficient in the Wind Turbine section since SAM will not be able to calculate it without more information from other hub heights.

Is there an average shear coefficient or wind resource files for more hub heights that I can use to representatively simulate over Texas, U.S.?
