Adaption/adoption of PIDINST for Wind Energy/Engineering community

  • Creator
  • #104151

    Dear all,
    I am very eager to provide new use cases for PIDINST. We are operating several static and mobile research infrastructures used in the wind energy/engineering community. As such we generate large quantities of data that we would like to relate to the infrastructures that created them (e.g., long-range WindScanner system). Therefore, for some time we have been looking for PID for instruments.
    I read a paper that you published and it would be very useful and efficient if someone could guide me a bit on how to adapt/adopt your work. My intention is to create sort of a recipe for my community, thus enabling more people to use the WG output and register PIDINST.
    Looking forward to your reply,

    Dear Nikola,
    Thanks for your interest and for reaching out! Your case sounds very
    You have probably already seen this, we keep the use case descriptions here:
    In principle you can grab an existing one as a template. Feel free to
    post a PR and we will review/integrate it.
    Subsequently, we can see whether the current schema meets your
    requirements. For this, you would ideally join a future call, which
    are on first Wed every month at 2 pm UTC. I will send a reminder about
    the next call next week.
    Hope this helps.
    Cheers, m.

    Dear Markus,


    Many thanks for the swift reply.

    I am aware of the GIT repo, and I will follow your suggestion to investigate existing examples, build a wind-energy example, and submit Pull Request.

    Indeed, I would like to join one of the future calls.

    Best, Nikola
