Abstract

Prevision of the wind field by remote sensing wind lidars has the potential to improve the performance of wind turbines. The functionality of a WindEye lidar developed by Windar Photonics A/S (Denmark) for the wind energy market was tested in a two months long field experiment. The WindEye sensor measures the wind speed along two beams to determine the wind direction of the incoming wind field. The field experiment utilized two sonic anemometers located in the two centers of the measurement volumes of the WindEye as reference instruments. It was found that the WindEye measured the wind direction with a high accuracy during the whole campaign.
