Numerical Simulation of Wind Energy Characteristics in Jiangsu Coastal Area
In order to explore the surface layer wind energy characteristics in Jiangsu coastal area, MM5 model and CALMET model and wind observations data are used in this paper. The comparison of simulated wind speed and observed wind speed shows that the MM5 and CALMET model can well simulate wind resource distribution and the simulated result is well agreed with observation. The results show that (1) Wind Resource in coastal area is more abundant than other area in Jiangsu Province;(2) Wind speed and wind power density in winter and spring are higher than that in summer and autumn;(3) predominant wind direction is NNW-N and SE-SSE.
