Long-range Power Performance Testing

PPT made simple

Power Performance Testing (PPT) has always been a time-consuming and expensive process. With an unprecedented range of up to 700 meters, WindCube® Nacelle is the only lidar on the market to reach such distances — both onshore and offshore — and meet the PPT requirements for any current and future wind turbine, with accuracy and reliability as good as or better than met masts.

Coupled with the WindCube Insights Analytics software platform — engineered specifically to support WindCube Nacelle — operators can perform quick, simple, and transparent PPT with IEC-compliant filtering, AEP calculation, and uncertainties reporting.

New advancements in measuring Turbulence Intensity with wind lidar

Industry players are working to increase lidar’s acceptance for TI measurements through projects aimed at developing guidelines and recommended practices — an ongoing effort. Vaisala is committed to advancing lidar technology and the wind energy industry through rigorous research and innovation.
