Short summary
The paper describes an innovative methodology to extract useful wind field estimates from remote sensing instruments – called lidars – mounted on the nacelle of a wind turbine. We used lidar measurements at multiple distances upstream and close to the wind turbine rotor in order to retrieve free-stream wind characteristics. The methodology and the obtained results open new paths to assess the power performance of wind turbines, which is essential to ensure financially viable wind farm projects.
