17:00 - 18:30 LiDARS: Advanced ways to measure the wind offshore

Resource assessment  

Room: A11

Session description

We will be learning about all leading types of LiDARs: floating, scanning and nacelle-mounted, and how they can measure the wind resource and verify windturbine power curves.

Learning Objectives

1. Identify opportunities and quantify the benefits of using LiDARs for offshore wind
2. Select the most suitable and cost effective resource measurement technologies depending on the site
3. Understand how windturbine performance can be measured offshore at a lower cost

This session will be chaired by:
Andrew Henderson, Senior Lead Offshore Wind Engineer, DONG Energy, United Kingdom

Co-chair: Ignacio Martí Pérez, ORE Catapult, United Kingdom
