    This paper presents the development of a new commercial floating lidar system aimed to measure the wind resource and other environmental variables at candidate wind farm locations. This work describes this new lidar system ...
  • Estimation of the motion-induced horizontal-wind-speed standard deviation in an offshore doppler lidar 

    Gutiérrez Antuñano, Miguel Ángel; Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Salcedo, A.; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco (Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute (MDPI), 2018-12-14)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents a new methodology to estimate the motion-induced standard deviation and related turbulence intensity on the retrieved horizontal wind speed by means of the velocity-azimuth-display algorithm applied to ...
  • Motion compensation study for a floating Doppler wind lidar 

    Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Gutiérrez Antuñano, Miguel Ángel; Würth, Inés; Puigdefàbregas Sagristà, Joan; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference report

    This paper addresses a cardanic frame as mechanical-compensation device for a Doppler-wind lidar installed on a floating sea buoy as the “moving” lidar. From the methodological point of view, the horizontal wind speed (HWS) ...
  • Performance evaluation of a floating Doppler wind lidar buoy in mediterranean near-shore conditions 

    Gutiérrez Antuñano, Miguel Ángel; Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Bischoff, Oliver; Cateura, Jordi; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2015)
    Conference lecture
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    This paper departs from a preliminary near-shore measurement test campaign hold at El Pont del Petroli (PdP), Barcelona (Spain) where measurements from a Doppler wind-lidar buoy (the ”floating” lidar) are cross-examined ...
  • Performance evaluation of a floating lidar buoy in nearshore conditions 

    Gutiérrez Antuñano, Miguel Ángel; Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco (2017-05-29)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work provides a signal-processing and statistical-error analysis methodology to assess key performance indicators for a floating Doppler wind lidar. The study introduces the raw-to-clean data processing chain, error ...
  • Vertical Azimuth Display simulator for wind-Doppler lidar error assessment 

    Tiana Alsina, Jordi; Rocadenbosch Burillo, Francisco; Gutiérrez Antuñano, Miguel Ángel (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2017)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    This works presents a simplified Vertical Azimuth Display (VAD) motion simulator for off-shore wind lidars. The simulator is rooted to the case of a conically-scanning lidar (e.g., the Zephyr lidar), where the wind speed ...
