R&D project shows nacelle-mounted LIDAR reduces yaw misalignment and improves turbine performance (2014-09-08)

A collaborative research project at the Energy Department’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has shown that the Wind Iris nacelle-mounted LIDAR from Avent Lidar Technology is an effective diagnostic tool for identifying wind turbine yaw misalignment, allowing users to improve wind turbine performance.  This is the first independent scientific field study validating the benefits of using turbine mounted LIDAR to correct rotor-induced yaw misalignment. An AEP increase of 2.4% has been estimated for a 7.5° misalignment.
