    Abstract

    A modern wind turbine rotor with a contemporary rotor size
    would easily with the tips penetrate the air between 116 m
    and 30 m and herby experience effects of different wind.
    With current rules on power performance measurements such
    as IEC 61400-121 the reference wind speed is measured at
    hub height, an oversimplification of the wind energy power
    over the rotor disk area is carried out.
    The project comprised a number of innovative and
    coordinated measurements on a full scale turbine with remote
    sensing technology and simulations on a 500 kW wind
    turbine for the effects of wind field characterization.
    The objective with the present report is to give a short
    overview of the different experiments carried out and results
    obtained within the final phase of this project.
