Abstract

In this study, we investigate the accuracy of wind-speed prediction at a designated target site using wind-speed data from reference stations that employ an ANN (artificial neural network). The reference and target sites fall into three geographical categories: plains, coast, and mountains of South Korea. Accurate wind-speed predictions are calculated by means of a correlation coefficient between the actual and simulated wind-speed data obtained by ANN. We investigate the effect of the geological characteristics of each category and the distance between reference and target sites on the accuracy of wind-speed prediction using ANN.
