Short summary
To what extent turbulence characteristics of wind in the atmosphere transfer to wind turbines in terms of power, loads, etc. is of great interest throughout the research community. An experimental approach using a model wind turbine at laboratory scale was used in a wind tunnel study. It is shown that the gustiness of the wind remains present in the wind turbine data, stressing the importance of including those wind characteristics in industry standards and when designing wind turbines.
