Characterizing turbine inflow during a stability transition using dual-Doppler radar measurements

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review

Abstract

Measurements from two specialized Doppler radars are used to construct a dual-Doppler synthesis of the boundary layer wind flow during an unstable-to-stable transition. Three rotor sweep concepts are inserted into the flow to evaluate turbine inflow variability across the rotor sweeps. One-second turbine inflow forecasts are constructed using an advanced advection correction technique at each rotor grid point allowing for detailed statistical analysis of shear, veer, and turbulence intensity across the three rotor sweeps.
