With numerous Lidar technologies used for wind measurement today, it is fair to wonder which device is best suited for use in cold climates. ZX Lidars has spent a considerable amount of time analyzing how their Doppler Lidar technology, ZX 300, performs in clear-air, low-backscatter conditions typical of high latitudes.
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.
Read on for an overview of the latest software releases for the SymphoniePRO Data Logger, SymphoniePRO Desktop Application (SPD), which is now at version 3.8.1.
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.
We would like to inform you that NRG Systems is preparing to retire the 110S Temperature Sensor and the 200P Wind Vane.
In 2018, ZephIR Lidar became ZX Lidars. This shift represented much more than a rebrand for the UK-based company, which provides a range of industry-leading wind Lidar products.
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 has expanded its solutions to include data services, including email service for data loggers, continuous automated conversion of measurement data, an open source Python package to aid in DIY data processing, continuous monitoring of measurement campaigns, ad hoc data analysis, and more.
NRG sensors endure a battery of intense tests before they are released to our customers. The NRG 200M Wind Direction Vane was no different.
SymphoniePRO Desktop Application (SPD) version 3.6 has arrived! Highlights include support for thermistor type temperature sensors, improvements to wind vane configuration and support, and more detailed sensor history information.
