Validation Studies

Triton is the most validated remote sensing system in the wind energy industry. In addition, a first-of-its-kind worldwide study analyzed dozens of collocated Triton - met tower deployments and concluded:

Triton is as accurate as a met tower — not just in one carefully controlled test experiment, but over years of commercial field use, representing tens of thousands of data hours.

Most recently, a 2018 study demonstrates the accuracy of Triton measurements in complex terrain and presents a way to reduce flow-induced bias.

IEC Guidelines for Power Curve Testing

The IEC's new edition of its standard for wind turbine power performance testing 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?

Watch our on-demand webinar to learn what the revised standard means for remote sensing users.
