WIND PROFILE MONITORING
Building and running a wind farm is like making a puzzle with half the pieces missing. You might be able to identify the general picture, but you’re missing many of the critical details. Scanning lidar gives you that detail.
As today’s turbines and wind farms increase in size and power, one turbine can have a significant effect on another.
- Users need a reliable understanding of wake effects to avoid performance degradation.
- Scanning lidar provides a real-time check of these effects, which can help users optimize design, turbine choices, yaw settings, and construction.
Unlike vertical profiling lidar, scanning lidar units measure wind across 360˚ using several scanning patterns, up to ranges of 15km and beyond. This capability is useful for many onshore and offshore projects.
- Scanning lidar provides full 3D wind awareness, even covering multiple turbines at a time.
- This level of detail greatly improves decision-making, improves bankability, and validates or refines other measurement systems
Wind Cube Scan offers full 3D scanning with typical ranges up to 3km, 6km, or 10km (depending on model) — as well as multiple scanning patterns that make it ideal for many campaign types. The system boasts outstanding uptime, reliability, and a robust onsite maintenance program, making it an ideal solution for long-term projects. And it can be moved and repurposed to support a variety of applications, providing outstanding value over time. Read more in the datasheet below…
