Return On Investment on a Lidar


M. Boquet, P. Callard, N. Deve, E. Osler

During the project study, a Wind Resource Assessment Program (WRAP) is designed to estimate the mean expected AEP (P50) and the uncertainty on the AEP (σAEP). These two decisive numbers drive the financing of the project. Small derivations in the calculated level of uncertainty can have a significant effect on project financing.

Power Curve Estimation using Lidar


M. Wächter, J. Gottschall, A. Rettenmeier

Power curve estimation was performed for a 5MW wind turbine using wind speed measurements of a LIDAR laser Doppler anemometer, following the IEC 61400-12-1 standard on the one hand and a novel dynamical approach on the other hand.

Exploring LIDAR Remote Sensing Technology for Offshore Wind Resource Monitoring Applications


Dan Jaynes and Jerome Jacquemin

Garrad Hassan Design and installation of offshore meteorological masts requires careful preparation and access to relatively large amounts of capital in the sensitive and uncertain initial phases of project planning. In this context, the LiDAR measurement technique has emerged as a potentially attractive and economically competitive alternative to traditional offshore met masts. (Poster)
