This webinar will provide a vision of power curve testing under the new IEC standard. The use of lidar and other remote sensing technologies is expected to revolutionize power curve testing, eliminating the need for expensive permanent met towers for power curve testing.
Since many turbines have failed to meet expected power performance levels, the new standard offers exciting new options to test turbines at all projects, but at a dramatically lower price. This is expected to offer benefits by reducing the cost of testing, enhancing performance, and shifting the blame away from O&M staff for under-performing projects.
