Location of the four study sites.
Comparison between monthly mean wind speed of the 4 sites studied.
Annual wind speed probability density distributions derived from the measured daily time series data of Izaña, Los Rodeos, Sta., Cruz, and Sur (airport) for the whole data base.
Annual wind speed distribution of Tenerife (10 m over the ground level, m/s).
Wind energy density obtained from the actual data versus those obtained from the Weibull and Rayleigh models on a monthly basis for the four different locations.
Comparison between power and wind energy in the 4 meteorological stations.
Percentage of calms for every meteorological station.
Wind direction and frequency speed distributions are shown for the four different study sites.
Performance curve for the Gamesa G94-2,0 Mw turbine (red points represent the cubic polynomial function, y = −1.510x3 + 51.89x2−277.1 x + 465.3, which show a great fit in predicting the performance curve).
