PO130: Evaluation of wind field reconstruction methods for floating vertical profiler lidars
Salma Yahiaoui, Research and application engineer, VAISALA
As offshore wind energy grows, floating lidars are increasingly being used instead of fixed platforms or met masts. A key challenge in offshore conditions is buoy motion. This motion creates artificial turbulence, which increases uncertainty in the lidar measurements. Recently, Leosphere, a Vaisala Company, developed Hybrid Wind Field Reconstruction (WFR) for its fixed vertical profiler lidars. The Hybrid WFR combines both scalar and vector averaging and reduces wind speed sensitivity to wind turbulences. This presentation will evaluate the benefit of the Hybrid WFR for the specific case of a buoy-mounted pulsed Lidar system. The objective is to assess the performance of the various WFRs (scalar, vector and hybrid) in offshore conditions and determine which one is the best method for floating vertical profiling lidar.
