The paper discusses the accuracy and efficiency of some of the standard estimators used in conjunction with the Peaks-Over-Threshold (POT) method. A comparison is made between some commonly adopted estimators and two types of estimators proposed by the authors. The comparison is based on an extensive set of synthetic data simulated from a range of different statistical distribution functions that have been assumed to describe wind speed processes.
