Icing Climate and Productivity: Choosing the Right Sensor

Detecting ice events is crucial for ensuring the profitability as well as the safety of of wind farms in cold climates, but what about sensor performance? Nergica recently published a paper that proposes a methodology to evaluate the performance of sensors currently offered on the market.

Highlights

  • Overview of icing
  • Quantitative performance assessment for meteorological sensors in icing conditions
  • A reliable performance index that can be used to optimize wind farm profitability
