Example For Averaging

WindDataSuite implements a module for averaging the data.
Averages over arbitrary height levels and over the entire height profile can be calculated.
Arbitrary temporal means, hourly means, daily means, monthly means, and yearly means can be calculated.
Seasonal variations as diurnal variation, monthly variation, and yearly variation can be calculated.
All averages can be constrained to arbitrary day times and/or night times.
Besides the averages, also the standard deviations and the availabilities in the respective averaging intervals can be calculated.
In the following example, the hourly means (Fig.2) and the diurnal variation (Fig.3) have been calculated from 10-minutes wind speeds in all heights (Fig.1).

Fig.1 10-min data
Fig.1: 10-minutes wind speeds
Fig.2 1-hour data
Fig.2: Wind speeds averaged onto 1-hour intervals
Fig.3 Diurnal variation
Fig.3: Diurnal variation of the wind speeds
Data range : 1 year (365 days), sampling rate 10 minutes
Processed channels : 31 height levels of wind speed
Computing time : approx. 1 second
Processing time : approx. 1 minute
