For applications within the wind energy industry, it is critical to capture wind speed data that fall within the power curve of the various turbine models being considered for the project, so that an accurate estimate of future energy production can be calculated from the wind speed data set.
With the introduction of the NRG S1 Anemometer in August 2019, NRG Systems conducted a round-robin S1 calibration study. The intent of the study was to quantify in a transparent way the differences in calibration results that NRG customers should expect from the three industry-leading wind tunnels that provide calibrations for NRG anemometers.
While Doppler Lidar is widely used and excels at providing accurate boundary layer measurements, Direct Detect Lidar has emerged as another remote sensing option for meteorological applications.
NRG sensors endure a battery of intense tests before they are released to our customers. The NRG 200M Wind Direction Vane was no different.
2018 was a big year for NRG’s sensor product line. We introduced the 200M Wind Direction Vane and the T60 Temperature Sensor – two next-gen sensors developed to offer improved measurement uncertainty when compared to their predecessors, the 200P Wind Direction Vane and 110S Temperature Sensor, respectively, while retaining legacy features that make them well suited for wind resource assessment.
In certain circumstances proper tower grounding may not be enough to fully protect your instruments and sensors, so NRG has consistently focused on building features into our products that increase their resilience in ESD challenging environments.
Renewable NRG Systems will no longer sell the “A” version of the WindSensor P2546-OPR Anemometer as of this summer, with a final ship date of June 30, 2017. This change only affects the P2546A-OPR model, which has a square wave output.
RNRG has developed a goalpost mounting solution tailored for power performance testing. When used with our 80m XHD TallTower and standard 2.4m Side Mount Booms, the solution achieves full IEC compliance.
The draft IEC 61400-12-1 standard, expected to be released in early 2017, has taken what was previously an optional sensor rise recommendation and made it the new minimum for compliance.
Renewable NRG Systems’ products are purpose-built for renewable energy professionals. Our newest data logger, SymphoniePRO, builds on this proven approach. The result is a data logging system optimized for each step of the resource assessment process, from configuration to data processing.
