Nacelle based LIDAR (Light detection and ranging) systems provide preview information of wind disturbances at various distances in front of a wind turbine. Preliminary work towards this objective [1] has shown that the predictive knowledge of the rotor effective wind speed can be used to improve the speed regulation by a predictive feedforward update to the(More)
This work presents results from a new field-testing campaign conducted on the three-bladed Controls Advanced Research Turbine (CART3) at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory in 2014. Tests were conducted using a commercially available, nacelle-mounted continuous-wave lidar system from ZephIR Lidar for the implementation of a lidar-based collective pitch(More)
Developers and owners of wind turbines have a duty to ensure the safety of the general public and their own staff. However, there are currently no guidelines for dealing with potential dangers arising from ice thrown off wind turbines. This puts developers, owners, planning authorities and insurers in a difficult position. To rectify this situation, the(More)
