Development of a simulation model for wind measurement campaigns employing a LiDAR buoy. The simulation makes it possible to quantify the buoy’s measurement uncertainties even prior to the measurement campaign.

Icing on wind turbines can cause severe loss of earnings. The partners of the project OptAn-Ice will improve the usage of anti-icing techniques on wind turbines blades for developers and operators. CFD simulations will be compared and validated with experimental testing results. Testing series with blade coatings will be conducted, and icing at a certain turbine type will be simulated.
