Abstract:
Exploring experiments were carried out with a mini-SODAR during athree-month period. The aim was to investigate whether a mini-SODAR could replace the meteo tower and cup-anemometer in future wind energy measurements. The first results show that mini- SODAR could be an alternative for all types of wind energy measurements. However, for the implementation some further research will have to be carried out. Next to the exploring experiments, the integration of a mini-SODAR system in the new ECN data acquisition system was considered. 8 refs.
