WindLogics and Second Wind Inc. announced today that WindLogics has purchased two Second Wind Triton sonic wind profilers and plans to use the Triton data with SCADA data in a new study on an operating wind farm.
They are working with the University of Minnesota to use the SCADA and
SoDAR data to develop a high resolution model predicting wake effects
and enabling improved wind farm design. The Tritons will provide
reliable and continuous wind profiles under these complex conditions.
The development phase of this R&D project, conducted as part of the
Xcel Renewable Development Fund, will be completed in 2011, with the
entire project completed by 2012.
