Complex Wind Flow

Compared to met towers, remote sensing systems are much easier to use in rugged terrain. Now, CFD modeling can be used to reduce the bias that occurs when any remote sensing system is used to measure areas with complex wind flow.

A core area of focus for studies assessing the accuracy and performance of remote sensing systems is evaluating how the units respond to wind flow in complex terrain.

Remote Sensing Revolution discusses the problems of measuring complex flow in depth:

  • Special issues in using any remote sensing technology in areas of complex wind flow
  • How CFD model simulations are used to reduce bias
  • How industry leaders from all sides of the wind industry regard the use of remote sensing systems in complex terrain.

Complex Terrain Comparison Study

A first-of-its-kind global comparison study, released in 2015, examined the performance of thirty Triton-and-met-tower pairs that had been deployed in locations all over the world. Unlike a single validation or verification study, this study looked at the...
