Wind measurements with LIDAR technology

monday, october 06, 2014

ECN together with XEMC-Darwind, TU Delft and Avent Lidar Technology are exploring the application of LIDAR technology for wind turbines.

With a LIDAR system it is possible to accurately determine the speed and direction of the wind before it reaches the rotor of a wind turbine.
