Wind Classes for Wind Maps

Each wind power class should span two power densities. For example, Wind Power Class = 3 represents the Wind Power Density range between 150 W/m2 and 200 W/m2. The offset cells in the first column attempt to illustrate this concept. Please note that the wind speed classes are taken at 30 m (100 ft), instead of the usual 10 m (33 ft).

Classes of wind power density at 10 m and 50 m (a)
Wind Power Class* 10 m (33 ft) 50 m (164 ft)
Wind Power Density (W/m2) Speed (b) m/s (mph) Wind Power Density (W/m2) Speed (b) m/s (mph)
1 0 0 0 0
100 4.4 (9.8) 200 5.6 (12.5)
2
150 5.1 (11.5) 300 6.4 (14.3)
3
200 5.6 (12.5) 400 7.0 (15.7)
4
250 6.0 (13.4) 500 7.5 (16.8)
5
300 6.4 (14.3) 600 8.0 (17.9)
6
400 7.0 (15.7) 800 8.8 (19.7)
7
1000 9.4 (21.1) 2000 11.9 (26.6)

(a) Vertical extrapolation of wind speed based on the 1/7 power law.
(b) Mean wind speed is based on Rayleigh speed distribution of equivalent mean wind power density. Wind speed is for standard sea-level conditions.
