PO268: Combining novel wind resource methodologies to deliver low-cost, ‘bankable’ data at a large onshore wind farm in complex terrain
Wulstan Nixon, ZX Lidars
Meteorological masts (met masts) are limited by their physical position and instrument heights, which will be chosen in advance of a wind measurement campaign. Their cost, difficulty to install and the continued health and safety concerns associated with their operation and maintenance continues to diminish their relevance as wind turbines increase in both rotor diameter and hub height. By combining novel wind resource methodologies including short met masts, Continuous Wave wind Lidars, capable of measuring / correlating with short met mats, and Computational Fluid Dynamics a low-cost, low-risk, flexible and ‘bankable’ solution is presented from a planned ~160MW wind farm in Western Greece in very complex terrain.
