Abstract

The most important uncertainties in the tests oriented to estimate the Annual Energy Production of a type of wind turbine, come from the wind measurements, in the determination of the power curve of the machine. The existing Standards indicate that wind measurements shall be taken by cup anemometers. These sensors are not able to measure some wind properties that affect power performance and that arc proposed to be included in the future Standard's revision, by recent research projects (mainly in complex terrain). Even, cup anemometers do not measure properly the reference wind speed, since they deviate before some wind conditions such as high turbulence, and wind vertical components. Ultrasonic anemometers present a serious alternative to be assessed.
