Vaisala, in conjunction with several leading wind energy developers, recently conducted a study comparing the Triton remote sensing system to met towers. Learn about the study and examine the basics of wind industry measurement correlation studies.
Remote sensing systems are being used worldwide to help improve the
profitability and efficiency of wind resource assessments and wind farm
operations. By measuring wind at heights higher than the commonly used
met towers, remote sensing systems play an important role in gaining
more certainty in wind measurements.
Remote sensing systems are often “validated” by being compared to
measurements made by met towers. Recently Vaisala, in cooperation with
industry-leading wind energy developers, released a broader study which
compares the field performance of the Vaisala Triton Wind Profiler to
met towers in actual wind industry deployments, not just carefully
Watch this webinar to learn more about the recent Vaisala study as
well as to examine some of the fundamentals of remote sensing
