PhD Summer School: Remote Sensing for Wind Energy

The Summer School is going to take place 24 – 28 June 2019
at DTU Wind Energy, Risø Campus, Roskilde

This 5-day summer school will focus on advances in remote sensing techniques useful in wind energy. The topics to be covered are development, instrument configuration, signal processing, data analysis and applications of various remote sensing instruments including LIDAR, SODAR and SAR both ground- and satellite-based instruments. Applied use includes wind resource mapping, wind profiling, power curve, wind loads, turbulence, and wind turbine control. Theoretical aspects of scattering and atmospheric boundary-layer characteristics relevant in remote sensing for wind energy will also be covered.

Practical experiments will demonstrate remote sensing methodologies, and advantages and limitations will be discussed.
