Investigations of the wind shear up to the height of 200 (m) on the Latvian coast of the Baltic Sea have been carried out using a Pentalum SpiDAR laser measuring complex. Based on wind speeds measurements for three levels – 30, 40 and 50 (m), assessment of the operational efficiency of the wind turbines for heights 100, 140 and 180 (m) have been performed. For comparison, this analysis involves five different approaches: the Rayleigh frequency distribution, three different Weibull frequency distributions and method based on approximation of the cubic wind speed. Results are compared with measurements on the corresponding heights.
