Software solution leveraging lidar and turbine data for power performance testing

Leosphere, a Vaisala company, announced the launch of WindCube Insights, a proprietary data analytics software designed specifically for the WindCube Nacelle (previously called Wind Iris) nacelle-mounted lidar that simplifies the wind turbine power performance testing process. WindCube Insights enables true and fully transparent data analysis and reporting for WindCube Nacelle customers, within a web-based user interface. The software enables the upload of both WindCube Nacelle lidar and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) turbine performance data with a simplified data synchronization process. The WindCube Nacelle lidar measures the wind conditions at hub height ahead of the turbine, enabling operators and wind turbine original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to efficiently and accurately assess performance and optimize design and production efficiency. When fully integrated within the wind turbine, Windcube Nacelle enables load reduction, design costs reduction, and continuous production gains.
