The ability to summarise the characteristics of turbulence into classical statistical models has long been a cause of intrigue for the wind energy industry. Currently, in the context of wind energy systems, a representation of turbulence is by a singular numerical value, turbulence intensity (TI), but the question is whether a classical statistic has the ability to accurately quantify the turbulence characteristic in question.
