Load and power measurements

SWE has carried out many power performance measurements for research and development. These measurements are enabled by SWE’s expertise in atmospheric and structural measurements, and portable data collection systems.

The SWE can measure wind turbine and wind plant inflow with ground-based and turbine-mounted lidar, drones, and in-situ met masts.

These skills allow the measurement of load and power performance curves of wind energy turbines according to IEC standards 61400-12 and 61400-13. The SWE usually conducts these measurements together with an accredited test institute.
