Improved data accuracy and availability for Lidar-Assisted Control
WindCube® Nacelle for feedforward turbine control is now better than ever. The result of a collaboration between Vaisala and IFP Energies nouvelles (IFPEN), WindBox software creates 3D reconstruction of the wind field from WindCube Nacelle lidar measurements.
WindBox, included with all new installations of Vaisala WindCube Nacelle for Turbine Control, is an unprecedented technical advancement that:
• Improves the performance of wind turbines
• Allows better control of wind disturbances
• Lowers loads and levelized cost of energy (LCOE)
• Extends the operational life of wind turbines
WindBox significantly improves wind measurement by exploiting the high detection capabilities of WindCube Nacelle for Turbine Control and integrating IFPEN’s real-time wind field reconstruction and prediction algorithm. Read the press release published by IFPEN.
A major wind turbine manufacturer is working with Vaisala to reduce loads and damage risks while increasing energy production. The offshore wind turbines are located near Shanghai, and are fully integrated with WindCube Nacelle Turbine Control including WindBox.
WindBox is now available for current customers using WindCube Nacelle for Turbine Control, and is included with all new installations.
