In order to assess the performance of a wind turbine, power curve measurements are usually performed. It allows measuring the correlation between the wind speed and the output power of the turbine and to compare this measurement to the contractual power curve.

WindCube Offshore Lidars are the equipment of choice for such measurement as it measures very accurately and along all the rotor the wind speed and wind direction. The low uncertainty of WindCube Offshore wind speed measurement translates directly into a low power curve uncertainty and a low AEP uncertainty.
