Here are a couple of plausible explanations for a lack of response to your first message posted 2 months ago:
Neither of your duplicate messages have any attachments. This could be caused by the fact (buried away in one or more of webpages or Posting Guides that define the Rhelp facility) the information that the mail-server used by the Rhelp list strips any attachments unless they are one of the limited number accepted file formats. (It does not notify posters of htis fact when they submit unacceptable formats.) The 4 formats I know to be accepted are: MIME-text, .pdf, .ps or .png. Even if you submit formats that you might think would be considered "text", they will not be accepted if they have non-".txt" extensions such as ".csv". As far as I can tell ... only .txt extensions are passed through.
I find an article by that name in Applied Energy Volume 88, Issue 4, April 2011, Pages 1405–1414. The publisher offers a copy at the price of 42 USD. (Expecting us to buy that article seems unreasonable.)
Most of us are not meteorological researchers. In general list members are more likely to respond to requests that include a) sample data, b) code that reflects your efforts, and c) a specification of correct output. It may be helpful to list details of your position.
