Short summary
The wind turbine safety standard includes a coherent gust model with a wind speed increase and direction change of 10 s. With the increasing rotor size of modern wind turbines this model is criticized for being uniform across these large rotors. In this study we investigate measurements of coherent gusts with a ramp-like increase in wind speed. We define a new method for ramp detection and characterization and compare it with the coherent gust model from the wind turbine safety standard.
