Project objective

In the project, the aim is to establish a unique turbine power performance and induction zone benchmark experiment by operating a DTU developed high-resolution nacelle integrated 2D SpinnerLidar installed in a research wind turbine at ECN. Concurrently, three ground-based short-range WindScanner lidars from DTU was deployed to perform 3D wind velocity field observations Cf. and

Expected outcome

Obtain 6 weeks measurements with WindScanner SpinnerLidar at ECN wind turbine test field and obtain data from three ground-based short-range WindScanner lidars during a two-week campaign and deliver the wind turbine 10-minute data power production, pitch angle and rotational speed to a public database. All data in open public database.
