The future of SGRE turbine performance tests offshore and onshore is the ZX TM nacelle Lidar

GO ECO GREEN21

GO ECO GREEN21. In connection with a power curve campaign, Siemens Gamesa has tested a new technology together with the well-known company ZX Lidars. Based on the positive results achieved, both on the medium range and long range measurements, Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy approves the use of the nacelle based Continuous Wave scanning Lidar ‘ZX TM’ from Lidar OEM ZX Lidars for Power Performance Testing.

Importantly and in addition to this, operational ‘rotor equivalent’ power curves can also be measured with ZX TM’s unique 50 points around the full rotor swept area, particularly important for turbines with larger rotor diameters offshore and on onshore sites with complex veer or shear profiles. A press report sent to Go Eco Green21 magazine states that this specific Lidar – ZX TM – allows the power curve of SGRE wind turbines to be measured and verified as a function of the Hub Height wind…
