Estimating the available offshore wind power at turbine hub height is a challenging problem due to the difficulty in measuring the wind profile in the boundary layer over the sea. Currently, two main methods are used to estimate the offshore extractible power at hub height: numerical models and floating Lidars.
The need to improve wind speed assessment, and thus estimating more precisely wind power availability throughout wind farms’ life cycle, has led to a growing interest in using remote sensing data to estimate wind resources.
