Abstract

Holistic understanding of wind behaviour over space, time and height is essential for harvesting wind energy application. This study presents a novel approach for mapping frequent wind profile patterns using multi-dimensional sequential pattern mining (MDSPM). This study is illustrated with a time series of 24 years of European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts European Reanalysis-Interim gridded (0.125° × 0.125°) wind data for the Netherlands every 6 h and at six height levels. The wind data were first transformed into two spatio-temporal sequence databases (for speed and direction, respectively). Then, the Linear time Closed Itemset Miner Sequence algorithm was used to extract the multi-dimensional sequential patterns, which were then visualized using a 3D wind rose, a circular histogram and a geographical map. These patterns were further analysed to determine their wind shear coefficients and turbulence intensities as well as their spatial overlap with current areas with wind turbines. Our analysis identified four frequent wind profile patterns. One of them highly suitable to harvest wind energy at a height of 128 m and 68.97% of the geographical area covered by this pattern already contains wind turbines. This study shows that the proposed approach is capable of efficiently extracting meaningful patterns from complex spatio-temporal datasets.
