Program for PhD Summer School: Remote sensing for wind energy. This 5-day school will focus on advances in remote sensing techniques useful in wind energy. The themes to be covered are development, instrument configuration, signal processing, data analysis and applications of various remote sensing instruments covering LIDAR, SAR, ceilometers, micro profiling and SODAR among others both ground- and satellite-based instruments. Applied use includes wind resource mapping, wind profiling, power curve, wind loads and wind turbine control. Theoretical aspects on scattering and atmospheric boundary layer characteristics relevant in remote sensing for wind energy will be covered. Practical experiments will demonstrate remote sensing methodologies, and advantages and limitations will be discussed.
