SmartWind Technologies DD RadarFraunhofer IWES has selected SmartWind Technologies to provide a dual-Doppler radar solution to deliver  insights for the wind energy industry. As part of the “Wind Farm Radar – Validation and Demonstration of dual-Doppler Wind Field Measurements for Applications in the Wind Energy Industry” project, SmartWind Technologies will provide two custom radar systems and a suite of supporting software allowing for the automated construction of real-time maps of wind flow details.
The dual-Doppler radar system will be initially deployed near the Fraunhofer IWES facilities in Bremerhaven, Germany in spring 2024 for a multi-month measurement campaign before being relocated to future sites for further evaluation and implementation.  The project aim is to validate the accuracy and availability of the dual-Doppler Radar wind field measurements and to demonstrate its use for applications in the wind industry. The dual-Doppler radar system affords data collection flexibility to meet individual project demands. Typical maximum measurement ranges exceed 30 km, coupled with fast scan speeds and high spatial resolutions allow for the construction of detailed maps of the wind flows covering large footprints within and surrounding onshore and offshore wind farms. The project will investigate multiple data collection strategies, configurations and measurement applications to develop a roadmap for implementing future service activities for the wind energy industry.
