203m Validation Tower
Sentrex Wind Services Inc. offers validation (verification) services for your remote sensing devices (including AQ510, Triton, WindCube, and ZephIR) against our Fully IEC 61400-12-1:2017 compliant site & tower. The tower is equipped with first-class anemometry every 40m at 5 levels.
Validation Tower Features
For RSDs to be used in turbine power performance testing or wind resource assessment
RSD validation (verification) services
On-site power available
IEC compliant site
IEC compliant tower
Measure to a full height range of RSDs
Measure to heights typical of present turbine rotor diameters
Validation (verification) of remote sensing devices is intended to determine the level of agreement between an RSD’s measured wind speeds and a validation tower’s measured wind speeds.
The validation procedure is carried out in accordance with international standards and includes correlations and estimates of uncertainties. The process may take a number of weeks, and the user is provided with a validation report showing comparisons and associated uncertainties at up to five heights: 40m, 80m, 120m, 160m, and 200m.
In some cases, clients may request a non-IEC check on the unit prior to or
post-measurement campaign, to establish that the unit is working according
to the manufacturer’s specifications or to the client’s specified tolerances.
Reduced uncertainties of remote sensing measurement data
Better acceptance of RSD data by banks and investors
Meet standards required for the use of RSDs in turbine power performance testing
