In this paper the dependence of wind turbine fatigue loads on atmospheric stability is assessed. It is shown that fatigue loads depend strongly on stability, and highest loads occur for very unstable conditions. For a given hub height wind speed one can define an equivalent atmospheric stability that corresponds to the same cumulative loads as if one performs an infinite amount of simulations for all stability conditions that may occur. It is shown that stability, conditionalised to hub heightdoi:10.1088/1742-6596/524/1/012110 fatcat:oo4m4hjv7bg6jgphlc5vodbelu
