For some analysis I would like to compare with Global Wind Atlas wind data, can I use this data in Youwind model?
There is a method entering manual values but not as the effective wind speed but as the wind speed distribution with the Weibull function. Then, the wind speed will be an output of this distribution. The Global Wind Atlas wind speed has a 3km resolution, and you can get the Weibull Scale parameter A and Weibull shape factor k values by downloading their map. You can add A and k values in the wind resource section of Youwind Model and please make sure to empty the Mean Wind speed at 100m and 150m values. You can also upload your wind time series from GWA in the Wind Temporal Analysis section “Upload time-series file to Youwind”. We recommend however using the values in the platform that come from Vortex.
