IEC 61400-50-3:2022 describes procedures and methods that ensure that wind measurements using nacelle-mounted wind lidars are carried out and reported consistently and according to best practice. This document does not prescribe the purpose or use case of the wind measurements. However, as this document forms part of the IEC 61400 series of standards, it is anticipated that the wind measurements will be used in relation to some form of wind energy test or resource assessment. The scope of this document is limited to forward-looking nacelle-mounted wind lidars (i.e. the measurement volume is located upstream of the turbine rotor). This document aims to describe wind measurements using nacelle-mounted wind lidar with sufficient quality for the use case of power performance testing (according to IEC 61400‑12‑1:2017).
