Predicting the wind
The WindEYE emits two laser beams in a 60 degree angle 80 meters in front of the turbine, measuring the movements of aerosols in the air. With those measurements, the WindEYE ™ is able calculate the exact wind speed and wind direction of the oncoming wind, which allows the turbine to yaw accordingly before the wind reaches the turbine.
Gain more power
The application of the WindEYE™ and the WindTIMIZER™can optimize your turbine by correcting yaw misalignmentand potentially increase the AEP by 1-4%.'
The AEP increase provides a fast return of investment within 12 to 36 months, depending on local energy tariffs.The combined WindEYE™ LiDAR and WindTIMIZER™ solution ensures a constantly well-aligned turbine through dynamic correction of the turbine’s yaw-misalignment, by utilizing the continuous measurements from the WindEYE™ LiDAR.

A Durable and lightweight system
The measurements of The WindEYE ™ has been tested with a met. mast at DTU(the former Risø) concerning the WindEYE's ™ ability to correctly measure wind speed and wind direction. The below plots shows the correlation between the met. mast and the WindEYE. Read the whole report here.
Protocol and Data
The general concept behind the WindEYE's ™ measurements is displayed in the below diagram:
The measurements and calculations will be collected and stored in an accessible ASCII format in accordance with the below protocols list:
