Power Curve Measurement
WindGuard North America – a Deutsche WindGuard company
How does the turbine perform in different types of wind? The answer to this important question is crucial for your investment, because a turbine that fails to meet forecasts produces returns below your expectations. Our contacts to met mast manufacturers enable us to offer turn-key measurements specifically tailored to the conditions at your site.
The relevant standards IEC 61400-12-1 and IEC 61400-12-2 have been very actively shaped by WindGuard. Additionally, we make special evaluations far beyond the standard, for example, for wind shear or turbulence behavior.
We have extensive experience with LiDAR-based power curve tests, using ground-based, as well as nacelle or scanning-LiDARs.
Deutsche WindGuard is an approved testing laboratory for the power performance competence area within the IECRE scheme.
