Vestas assesses turbine suitability with Lidar wind measurements

Vestas releases details of assessing wind turbine suitability for projects with wind measurements from Lidar only, with ZX Lidars

Ahead of WindEurope’s Wind Technology Workshop 2022, Brussels, wind turbine OEM Vestas has released details of “a way towards Lidar-Only Load Response Comparison” that shows a methodology that can potentially enable wind farm developers to conduct Lidar only measurement campaigns that will support turbine suitability for new projects in the future. The methodology, referred to as Bandpass Adjusted Turbulence (BAT), brings a novel methodology for using measurements solely from wind Lidars for evaluating the load response of wind turbines forward using the wind turbulence spectra from the Lidar measurements.

The work is being regarded as a step towards ‘Wind Industry 2.0’ – a world where met masts are no longer required for this final hurdle within wind farm development, and follows the general acceptance of Lidar data by wind consultants and the finance community since 2012, onshore and offshore.

A collaboration between Vestas, Fred. Olsen Renewables, Natural Power and ZX Lidars has resulted in this significant development for the wind energy industry as the community works towards Lidar wind measurements that can be safer, faster, cheaper and better when compared to traditional mast and cup anemometry.
