Autonomous Aerial Sensors for Wind Power Meteorology

giebelOne of the areas of research that is attracting much interest within the wind power industry at the moment is site-specific meteorological observations for wind farms. The use of precise information on how a wind farm's local weather conditions correlate with more general regional forecasts, and how these conditions are reflected in the behaviour of the turbines at a specific site, has a profound effect on both the economic performance of the farm and its operations and maintenance plans. This article presents a new way of collecting this data; at first it may appear just a novel possibility, but, if successfully developed, it could prove an extremely cost-effective and reliable method.
