Short summary
This work is dedicated to the non-Gaussian statistics of wind velocity jumps and their effect on wind turbines, more specifically on fatigue loads. Wind velocity jumps are commonly simplified to behave in a Gaussian manner. This study discusses how to compare non-Gaussian to Gaussian wind fields properly and shows that the non-Gaussianity in fact can make a difference with respect to fatigue loads. Additionally, we highlight the dependence of our findings on the wind field's coherence.
