GaussWS: Convenience function to look-up values from a object returned...

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Author(s) References See Also Examples

View source: R/Functions.R

Description

Dependent on the resolution at which GenerateGauss was set to use, the resolution coordinates (array indices) cannot immediately be interpreted as being measured in meters. This function returns wind speeds from the Gauss object accoring to x, y, z simply provided in meters.

Usage

1
GaussWS(Gauss, x, y, z)

Arguments

Gauss

must be an object returned by GenerateGauss.

x

must be a single value. Provide desired distance in meters.

y

must be a single value. Provide desired distance in meters. May be negative.

z

must be a single value. Provide desired distance in meters.

Details

The Gaussian wake model is loosely based on the initial contribution by Bastankhah & Porte-Agel (2014).

Value

GaussWS returns a single number which can be considered a wind speed in the wake of a turbine at location x, y, and z.

Use GenerateGauss to compute the three-dimensional tensor array object containing the wind speed data. See QuickGauss3D for the same algorithm, immediately returning the wind speed at one single point only.
