Abstract

Preliminary assessments of the floating LiDAR have shown the technology to have significant potential for wind field measurements in the wind energy industry. To calibrate the motion compensation and validate the performance of the floating LiDAR, flume test and harbor test were conducted in a super wave tank (300m5.0m5.2m) at Tainan Hydraulics Laboratory (THL) and Hsing-Da Harbor, respectively. The comparisons of wind speed and direction profiles between the floating LiDAR and land-based LiDAR WINDCUBE v2, and regression analysis show the motion compensation is calibrated well. Besides, the wind data of three typhoon events were measured to investigate the wind characteristics, such as turbulence intensity and wind direction.
