How to create srw files?

I want to create an srw file to model small scale wind turbines in Australia. I have all the necessary weather data but do not know how to make the srw file. Note that I have tried editing one of SAM's existing srw files in MS Excel but SAM is unable to read this edited file.

Please see the description of the SRW file format in Help:

Weather File Formats

If that does not help you find the problem, please attach a copy of your file to a reply and I'll see if I can find the problem.

Best regards,
Paul.

Hi Paul

Thanks for your reply. I am aware of the SAM help file. I have followed it exactly and am confident that it is set out right. The problem has to do with the file type. No matter what file type I save it as (comma delimited, tab delimited etc), SAM cannot read it. Could you please confirm what file type should be used.

The SRW file should be comma-delimited, and use the extension .srw.

Best regards,
Paul.

Sir, is it possible to avail the wind resource data files in .srw format for Indian localities?

Hello,

I am not aware of a source of wind data in the SRW format for India. If you find data from another source, you can easily put it into the SRW format. It is a basic CSV format that is described in SAM's Help system.

Best regards,
Paul.
