In April, the IEC released a long-awaited new edition of its standard for wind turbine power performance testing. The standard includes guidance for using remote sensing systems such as SoDAR and LiDAR. 

Now, wind farm operators have a way to conduct power curve testing more easily, and wind farm developers have better guidance about how to determine the accuracy of remote sensors.

Or do they?

Join industry experts for our webinar on June 1 to learn:
  • What you need to know about your remote sensing system in order to use it for contractual power curve testing
  • How to understand uncertainty classes
  • Whether the standard affects the practice of wind resource assessment
