This more rigorous standard would require the downwind developer to affirmatively demonstrate through use of data from technologies such as SODAR, LIDAR, Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), Wind Atlas Analysis and Application Program (WASP), Large Eddy Stimulation (LES) software, or other technologically advanced wind wake-measuring software systems, that the upwind developer's turbine caused a substantial, adverse impact on the downwind developer's turbine.
The programme, focussed on resource assessment results, includes comparisons with real wind farm production data and with SODAR measured wind profiles.
AeroVironment's SODAR acoustic remote sensing systems played a key role, measuring wind speed, direction and turbulence up to 4,000 feet.
The scientists have set up remote sensors that use technology such as SODAR (SOnic Detection And Ranging), LIDAR (Light Detection And Ranging) and wind profilers to capture flow measurements.
The CBLAST observational tower extended to 24 m MSL, with additional turbulence, wind, and temperature data obtained by Long-EZ aircraft flights and SODAR.
