Smart wind turbines controlled by laser sensors

The Vindicator fiber optic laser wind sensing system measures real-time horizontal and vertical wind speed and direction at varying ranges out to 300 meters ahead of the sensor. When mounted on a wind turbine nacelle, this forward-looking information facilitates smarter turbine control for increased power output and reduced turbine stress.

    If wind speed in your area averages 9 mph or greater, wind can be the most cost-effective way to generate electricity. Wind turbines can produce power day and night even in inclement weather. With equal amounts invested, wind turbines can generate up to four times more electricity than solar. A hybrid system with a wind turbine combined with solar panels is the most efficient and reliable method to generate your own electricity.
