Effects of wind veer on turbine performance

As rotor diameters and hub heights of wind turbines continue to increase, it is common for turbines to experience significant changes in wind direction with height across the rotor plane. With more remote sensing devices being deployed, it is becoming easier to directly observe and quantify these high veer conditions. However, the direct impact of wind veer on turbine performance is only just beginning to be understood.
