Have you adopted remote sensing systems in your wind measurement program, or are you considering adopting them?
Remote sensing systems are being used worldwide to help improve the profitability and efficiency of wind resource assessments and wind farm operations. By measuring wind at heights higher than the commonly used met towers, remote sensing systems play an important role in gaining more certainty in wind measurements.
Remote sensing systems are often “validated” by being compared to measurements made by met towers. Recently Vaisala, in cooperation with industry-leading wind energy developers, released a broader study which compares the field performance of the Vaisala Triton Wind Profiler to met towers in actual wind industry deployments, not just carefully controlled experiments.
Watch this webinar to learn more about the recent Vaisala study as well as to examine some of the fundamentals of remote sensing correlation studies:
- Review concepts of accuracy, correlation, uncertainty, and validation and what each means in the context of the wind industry
- Discuss why traditional validation studies are important to the industry, and learn what you should be aware of when reviewing a validation study
- Learn why the Vaisala study is important, including implications for your wind resource assessment strategy
