Nacelle-mounted lidar for accurate measurement of turbulence intensity

With global wind capacity set to exceed 1 terawatt by the end of the year, the demand for accurate, reliable wind data will only increase in the future, powered by clean energy sources. As wind turbines sky higher and wind farms covering more expansive areas spring up, on and offshore, the accuracy of lidar technology in harnessing wind power helps optimise turbine performance and power output.

Ground-based and nacelle-mounted lidars are popular across the wind energy industry for delivering useful information and measurements across the life cycle, from prospecting and development through operations and life management. Whether helping with site prospection, Wind Resource Assessment (WRA), or providing accurate and complete Power Performance Testing (PPT), lidar has evolved into the industrywide gold standard for wind measurement.
