Task 52 Overview

IEA Wind Task 52, also referred to as ‘Wind Lidar’ Task, was kicked off recently with an online Kick-off / General Meeting on 24 and 25 May 2022.
It is a relaunch of Task 32, which in the last nine years supported successfully international collaboration on different wind lidar related topics and applications. In its three phases, Task 32 participants delivered two reports on recommended practices (IEA Wind RP 15 on ground-based remote sensing for wind resource assessment and RP 18 on the application of floating lidar systems) now widely accepted by the wind industry, several expert reports, scientific papers and conference contributions.
Task 52 will build on these achievements but at the same time further make sure that wind lidar is used by the industry in the best way and by this support the growth of onshore and offshore wind equally.

For more details see our poster which was presented at the WindEurope Technology Workshop 2022: WindEuropeTechWorkshop_2022_PO083

Mission and Vision

Task 52 mission: Our members work together on research to make wind lidar the best and preferred wind measurement tool for wind energy applications.

With this, our vision is that in the future, using wind lidar will be easy and will bring advantages and opportunities that enable the deployment of wind energy.

Four Themes - Six Active Working Groups

To follow up on our mission, we have specified four central themes with dedicated deliverables planned for the upcoming 4-year period of the Task.

Theme #1 "Universal inflow characterisation":

Working group (1) - Lidar Turbulence Intensity (TI) IEA-Wind-Task-52_Working-group-1_TI

Working group (2) - Lidar Assisted Control (LAC) IEA-Wind-Task-52_Working-group-2_LAC

Theme #2 "Replacing met masts":

Working group (3) - Complex terrain IEA-Wind-Task-52_Working-group-3_Complex-terrain

Working group (4) - Cold climate IEA-Wind-Task-52_Working-group-4_Cold-climate

Theme #3 "Connecting wind lidar"

Working group (5) - Digitalisation IEA-Wind-Task-52_Working-group-5_Digitalisation

Theme #4 "Accelerating offshore wind deployment"

Working group (6) - Scanning lidar offshore IEA-Wind-Task-52_Working-group-6_Offshore-SL
