Short summary
This innovative calibration method for a spinner anemometer allows a cheaper and faster installation of a spinner anemometer system, removing the need for the additional yaw position sensor. The method leverages the non-linearity of the spinner anemometer model to determine the calibration constant related to flow angle measurements. The method was applied to a database of 29 calibration campaigns and shown to be sufficiently robust.
