TurbSim- pRNG


I am new to TurbSim. I have no clue why we are using pRNG and what is the use of random number.

I went through the user guide also but did not get anything.

Can somebody help me with this?

The pseudo-random numbers are used to create a variety of time series that all have the same underlying spectrum.

Paul Veers’ Three Dimensional Wind Simulation paper, which is referenced in the TurbSim User’s Guide, discusses the simulation method.
