MGW, as the partner of LEICE, offer their wind measurement Lidar products and related technical services for the wind farm projects (Wind energy assessment & forecast, and power curve validation tests) and atmospheric monitoring projects in Australia and New Zealand. 

 

Nowadays, the wind measurement lidar products start to play a key role in renewable energy industry. Because when the wind turbine hub height become higher, the traditional Met-mast construction becomes more difficult and expensive.  Additionally, the setup for lidar measurement involves no high-risk activities on site, and it can be setup in 1 or 2 hours when the power supply is installed on mobile equipment.

Nacelle based wind measurement lidar - H400

WindHorizon H400 - wind turbine control & measurement Lidar

Key Features

Measuring distance: forward-looking from 50 to 400m, configurable;

Cost-effective: lower cost in supply and installation

Built-in wind turbine control algorithm: 

  • Built-in algorithm to measure static wind turbine yaw deviation
  • Dynamic wind turbine yaw control 
  • Wind turbine blades occlusion algorithm (Patent), to increase the data acquisition rate
  • H400 wind speed prediction algorithm

Designed for high reliability; 

Applications

Wind turbine performance optimization:

  • H400 Lidar can be eyes of the modern wind turbines to predict the wind change and then control the pitch and rotor speed to potentially reduce the mechanical fatigue, avoid the extreme load and increase the power output;

Power Curve Validation:

  • H400 Forward-looking wind measurement Lidar can also be used for power curve validation as the independent wind speed source for the test. This is much more cost-effective than current testing equipment.
