Remote Sensing for Wind Energy

when 30 May 2016 - 3 June 2016
language English
duration 1 week
credits 2.5 ECTS
fee EUR 250

This 4.5-day summer school will focus on advances in remote sensing techniques useful in wind energy.
The themes to be covered are development, instrument configuration, signal processing, data analysis and applications of various remote sensing instruments: SODAR, LIDAR, ceilometers and SAR among others, both ground- and satellite-based instruments. Applied use includes wind resource mapping, wind profiling, power curve, wind loads, turbulence, and wind turbine control. Theoretical aspects of scattering and atmospheric boundary-layer characteristics relevant in remote sensing for wind energy will also be covered. Practical experiments will demonstrate remote sensing methodologies, and advantages and limitations will be discussed.
