Guidance Working Group 

Leader Matthew Meyers (EON)

The Guidance Working group has bee put together to provide data driven recommendations on RSD Standardization and Acceptance, it consists of 3 subgroups. 

Baseline - Leader: Jeff Fine (RES)

  • Purpose is to establish current market best practices, what methodologies exist for RSD Validation, and what variables and metrics exist in the market. 
  • Identify how prevalent the use of Remote Sensing technology is in the wind industry.
  • Establishing the best practice standards for the use of Remote Sensing Devices in order to create an accepted bankable report.

Co-location Validation - Leader: Rory Curtis (RES)

  • Purpose is to establish standards for validation procedures. 
  • Focus on data set validation and appropriate data use. 
  • Define dependable performance indicators. 

Acceptance Criteria - Subgroup to be formed in mid-late 2019



Science Working Group - Leader Alexandra St.Pe (EON)

The Science working group has been put together to provide data driven answers to key RSD science questions, it consists of 4 subgroups 

Flow Correction - Leader: Neils LaWhite (Vaisala)

  • Purpose to provide data driven validation of methods used to correct RSD Measurements in Complex Flow. 
  • Demonstrate typical flow curavature bias based on terrain complexity and roughness, and create a standardized correction methods. 

Site Suitability - Leader: Alexandra St.Pe (EON)

  • Purpose more insight and data for Turbulence Intensity bias between Class I anemometers and RSD's. 
  • Identify and establish standard methodology for correcting RSD TI. 

Energy Uncertainty - Leader: Reesa Dexter (DNV-GL)

  • Purpose to improve RSD acceptance through better understanding and reducing associated uncertainty in pre-construction estimates.

Power Curves - Leader: Matthew Meyers (EON)

  • Purpose to provide data driven performance validation of RSD use for power Curve Testing. 
  • Provide data to support IEC 61400-12-1 Edition 2
