Vaisala WindCube Nacelle

Industry-leading nacelle lidar can be deployed temporarily for contractual and operational Power Performance Testing (PPT) and optimization, or integrated by manufacturers for feedforward Turbine Control.

New advancements in measuring Turbulence Intensity with wind lidar

Industry players are working to increase lidar’s acceptance for TI measurements through projects aimed at developing guidelines and recommended practices — an ongoing effort. Vaisala is committed to advancing lidar technology and the wind energy industry through rigorous research and innovation.  

Every turbine reaches its potential

WindCube® Nacelle is the industry’s most used and trusted nacelle-mounted lidar. Suitable for any turbine, this standalone nacelle-mounted lidar measures wind conditions at hub height at an unprecedented range of 700m — enabling efficient PPT and optimization.

The enhanced measurement range provides of the standalone lidar provides a complete picture of the wind profile — with accuracy and reliability as good as or better than met masts.
