Abstract

This report presents an overview of several scanning lidar applications in wind energy, and it reviews different wind measurement techniques used for offshore Power Curve Verification (PCV). It summarizes their advantages and disadvantages, and it lists some measurement challenges.

Special focus is put on the applicability of a single (sector-scanning) transition-piece based scanning lidar on a fixed-bottom (i.e. not floating) wind turbine. We reviewed the current power performance measurement standard, IEC 61400-12-1 Ed.2, and highlighted missing aspects, deviations, and items that need to be modified or completed, for the use of transition-piece scanning lidars.
