The use of nacelle lidar measurements for wind turbine control applications has been widely studied in the research community and is beginning to be adopted by industry. Successful implementation of lidar-assisted control to reduce the cost of wind energy involves several design choices, including lidar scan pattern selection, lidar data processing, and controller design.
In this webinar, Eric Simley and Andrew Scholbrock from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), and David Schlipf (Flensburg University of Applied Sciences) presented an overview of lidar-assisted control applications, answering the following questions:
This webinar expanded on the presentation Eric and Andrew recently gave on “Nacelle-Mounted Lidar for Wind Energy Applications” as part of NREL’s Wind Workforce Development webinar series. A recording of the presentation is available at https://youtu.be/yQIMDoYmFno.
