Siemens Gamesa has released details of new wind lidar technology now installed on the company’s SG 14-222 DD offshore wind turbine.
The ZX TM Continuous Wave Lidar system from ZX Lidars has been integrated by the WTG OEM and is now a standard option for the turbine, allowing for a fully IEC compliant power curve measurement to be undertaken without the need for a met mast. This lidar has the ability to see the wind ahead of the turbine across 50 points distributed across the whole rotor. This lidar solution is fully-approved and validated and supports the release of the SGRE turbine, now operational at the Østerild Wind Turbine Test Field, Denmark.
