Our LiDAR system


Our wind sensor measures the wind using laser light. The principle known as LIDAR was invented  in the 1970s.

 

We have fine-tuned the technology and replaced expensive light sources with a much more affordable laser.

 

 


Predicting the wind


The wind speed and wind direction are measured accurately from the top of the turbine, while the wind is still far away from the blades.


With these data the turbine is able to adapt to the oncoming wind in advance, which results in increased power production and a decrease in wear-and-tear on the wind turbine.



• Yaw optimization: 1-4% AEP          increase

 

• Load reduction: 10-14% 

 

• Appreciable ROI scenarios

 

• Control Integrated LiDAR

 


Gain more power


You can expect a 1% to 4% increase in power and at least 10-14 % less stress on the vital components of the wind turbine.


Depending on the price of power, your investment in the wind sensor could pay for itself within 12 to 36 months.


In subsequent years, you can reap the economic benefits of the additional power production, decreased wear-and-tear and fewer stoppage days.
