I am fairly new to machine learning, but what I am trying to do is predict energy output of a wind turbine based on a data set of wind speed and direction, and ideally turbulence and shear.
Do you know what type of data I need? I know I need a database of wind speed, direction, and possibly turbulence and shear. My questions are as follows:
Do you know of a specific database I can use with wind data and files I can download for my algorithm? So far I have these two sites:
Are these good options? Can I download one of these files to use in MATLAB?
Do I also need data of past energy outputs of the wind turbines I am focusing on (for comparison of my prediction with the actual data)?
Might neural networks and SVM algorithms suit the purpose of predicting wind energy output?
