Atmospheric stability strongly influences wind shear and thus has to be considered when performing load calculations for wind turbine design. Numerous methods exist however for obtaining stability in terms of the Obukhov length L as well as for correcting the logarithmic wind profile. It is therefore questioned to what extend the choice of...

In this paper the dependence of wind turbine fatigue loads on atmospheric stability is assessed. It is shown that fatigue loads depend strongly on stability, and highest loads occur for very unstable conditions. For a given hub height wind speed one can dene an equivalent atmospheric stability that corresponds to the same cumulative loads as if...
