Power Curve Measurements from the turbine to IEC 61400-50-3:2022
Understand a turbine’s true potential with a nacelle based power curve measurement.
ZX TM provides full rotor wind measurements and turbine motion-compensated true Hub Height measurement and can be used to follow IEC 61400-50-3:2022 Standard | Wind energy generation systems – Part 50-3: Use of nacelle-mounted lidars for wind measurements.
Remove uncertainties with flow distortion around nacelle anemometry by measuring ahead of the turbine in free wind flow.
Benchmark turbine-to-turbine performance to identify any early underperformance from blade erosion, forestry effects or other mechanical issues.
See the full rotor equivalent wind approaching the turbine to identify wakes, ground-effects and yaw misalignment.
Measurements can be made according to industry-standard procedures that are accepted by turbine manufacturers, when included in Turbine Supply Agreements.
Power Performance Testing (PPT) compares the actual power curve of a wind turbine to the warranted power curve provided by the wind turbine manufacturer.
