Lidar is creating new opportunities for proactively improving energy capture and system reliability. Wind energy as we know it is evolving.
Thanks to lidar’s versatility, new applications in wake studies and forecasting are emerging. Wake assessment is a key factor in evaluating energy production and optimizing wind farm layouts, and short-term forecasting allows for proactive optimizations at the turbine or wind farm level, ensuring maximum energy capture and protecting turbine structures.
