The columns in TRNSYS TMY files are listed in the main manual, Section 
4.1.11, table 4.1.11-1.

I have attached 3 examples of data file for Type 90. There are comments 
inside so hopefully you can make other files from those.

The main "catches" are:
- Control strategy: you MUST have 5 spaces before the identifying letter
- Do not use other units than m, m/s and kW
- Start you data pairs at a wind speed = 0
- End you data paris at a wind speed higher than what you can get
   (windspeeds higher than the last one in the datafile will crash

NOTE: Since there was another question about Type 190, you should know 
that the data files for Type 90 and Type 190 are slightly different 
(same data in different order). Do not use the files attached to this 
message for Type 190!

I hope this helps,
