The focus of my work lies in the investigation and development of measurement strategies for the optimized determination of the long-term wind potential in site assessment for wind farms. Main topics are the improvement of the vertical extrapolation of wind speed using short-term lidar measurements as well as the long-term correction of short-term wind measurements.
Besides a reduction of the measurement time, the reduction of uncertainties is an essential goal of the analyses.
