Important milestone: 1000 wind turbines with lidar-assisted control

Important milestone: 1000 wind turbines with lidar-assisted control

We are very proud to announce that Goldwind already installed 1000 turbines with a total capacity around 3 GW using the EFARM LiDAR Assisted Control Technology developed together with sowento (by end of 2020).

In future projects, we aim at

  • making the lidar data processing more adaptive using our Smart Lidar concept,
  • optimizing the wind turbine performance with model predictive control,
  • and to let the forward-looking wind turbines cooperate with each other using data-based wind farm control.

About sowento

sowento is an engineering consultancy and technology advisor, with its main business fields in wind energy applications, more specific lidar technology, floating wind, and wind farm simulation and control applications. The strength of sowento is its profound theoretical knowledge in both lidar and floating platforms which are highly relevant for future wind turbine systems. sowento staff includes engineers from control, aerospace and offshore engineering.
