Abstract [en]

Expectations for turbine-mounted lidar are increasing. The installation of lidars in wind turbine nacelles for measuring incoming winds, preventing wind gusts and increasing energy productions is after recently studies, technically and economically feasible. Among available lidar types, the most studied were continuous wave lidars because they were the most reliable apparatus when this initiative began. However, after studying technical considerations and checking commercial lidars, it was found that pulsed lidarslead this technology due to their promising results. The purpose of this report is to fill the gap between the interest in this technology and the absence of any academic papers that analyzes continuous-wave and pulsed lidars forthe mounted lidar concept. Hence, this report discusses the importance of turbine mounted lidars for wind power industry, different possible configurations and explains why specifically pulsed lidars are becoming more important for the mounted lidarmarket.
