Short summary
A common assumption in the design of wind turbines and wind farms is that the wind field is quite uniform. This assumption is violated during so-called low-level jet events, when there is a distinct peak in the wind speed. Low-level jets modify loads on the turbines and also affect power production. To understand their impact and facilitate better planning and design, we present a detailed climatology of these events over the North Sea, based on offshore measurements and meteorological models.
