Short summary
We present an engineering model of 3-D turbulent wind inflow which reduces the number of random variables required from tens of thousands to ~ 20. This new model is a vital step towards stochastic modelling of wind turbines. Such models can quickly assess turbine lifetime loads and fluctuating power output and thus can be used to design better turbines. However, stochastic models are only viable when the input is expressed with very few random variables, hence the new wind model presented here.
