LTD300 LiDAR Trailer For Turn-key Wind Measurement LiDAR Solution for Australian & New Zealand Wind Projects

Patent Pending Turn-key Wind LiDAR System

Turnkey LiDAR Wind Measurement Solution for Australian & New Zealand Wind Projects

Patented Turnkey Wind LiDAR System, Patent Application Number: AU 2022901693

LiDAR Solutions specifically developed a portable LiDAR wind measurement system that is easy to operate and relocate on site, which can be set up in about half an hour with 2 technicians after the LiDAR wind sensor system arrives on site. It also comes with cattle proof capability, which means extra fences aren’t required to be installed. It can be used for local wind farm projects (wind energy assessment & forecast, and power curve validation tests) as well as atmospheric monitoring projects. 

Key Features including: 

  • Compact design, 7X5 trailer, lightweight (less than 550kg) and high ground clearance. These features allow the LiDAR trailer to be towed easily under off-road conditions and lifted by helicopter when the installation location is not accessible.
  • Multiple choices of communication method: 3G/4G by default, or upgrade to Starlink when mobile service is not available.
  • Remotely monitorable and controllable for Molas B300 LiDAR. The LiDAR status, including operation status, real-time wind data, signal-noise ratio and temperature, can be remotely monitored. The configuration for the LiDAR wind sensor such as measurement heights and email settings can be remotely configured. Even if the LiDAR wind sensor system is frozen, the system allows the operator to cut-off the power and re-energise the system remotely to save a trip to the site just for rebooting the system.
  • Intelligent power supply system with lithium batteries. Solar system is fully monitorable, and real-time, daily, weekly and monthly historic solar generation and power consumption are available.
  • No cleaning fluid is required for the LiDAR screen, and no periodical service is required during a 1 year measurement campaign.
  • Less manual handling during setup, as LiDAR is stored at the same level – just slide it out from storage.
  • Aluminium structures for better anti-corrosion performance, and enhanced solar panel supports and outriggers for improved durability. 

LDT300 LiDAR Trailer System In Australia

Trusted by a growing number of clients, the LDT300 LiDAR Trailer is making wind measurement campaigns for wind farm development projects easier than ever accross Australia, including Victoria, NSW, Northwestern Queensland, Central North Territory, TAS, & WA because of the following innovative features: 

The latest data confirms that our LDT300 LiDAR trailer has been consistently delivering exceptional performance, boasting an impressive average of 98% availability across various sites. This outstanding reliability remains unwavering, regardless of the climatic conditions – be it scorching heat, cool temperatures, or pristine air quality on-site.

Australia’s unique climate demands specialized solutions, and the LDT300 has risen to the challenge. Its ability to maintain high data quality under local weather conditions has been nothing short of remarkable. From the arid landscapes of Northwestern Queensland to the diverse terrains of Victoria, the LDT300 is proving its mettle.

We extend our gratitude to our esteemed clients who have put their trust in the LDT300 LiDAR trailer. Your feedback and support have been instrumental in the continued success of this innovative solution. We are committed to delivering the highest quality data and service to meet and exceed your expectations.

Monitoring Features of the System

The turnkey LiDAR wind measurement system can be monitored both locally and remotely. The status of the Molas B300 and power system can be accessed from anywhere in the world with internet. You can find the general introductions below.

Local Monitoring for Molas B300 LiDAR

Molas B300 can be monitored and configured with its client application, such as measurement heights setting, orientation compensation and email addresses to receive the data, plus data can be downloaded locally. The status of the system, like wind data, SNR and THP sensor readings, can also be monitored locally. 

Remote Monitoring for Molas B300 LiDAR

Molas B300 can also be monitored and configured with its web based remote platform. As with the local monitoring app, the wind data can be downloaded remotely and the status of Molas B300 like wind data, SNR and THP sensor readings can be monitored remotely. 

Remote Monitoring for Charge Controller and Battery

The status of the power supply for the LiDAR wind measurement system, like voltage of the battery (which also represents the battery level for deep cycle battery), can be monitored remotely.

The remote reset for the Wind LiDAR system is also available when there are issues with software. 

LiDAR vs SODAR Wind Measurement

LiDAR Wind Measurement

A LiDAR wind measurement system is an active optical remote sensing system that can be utilised for both airborne and ground level based applications. It’s designed to use light to ascertain distances by aiming at a surface or an object with a laser beam to the atmospheric boundary layer as either a pulse or a continuous wave, then gauging the time for the reflected light to return to the system. A LiDAR wind sensor can be aimed at a fixed direction or be used to scan multiple directions simultaneously.

SODAR Wind Measurement

A SODAR system is a ground-based meteorological instrument that’s designed to evaluate and measure sound waves to determine wind speed at different heights above the ground. It uses a speaker to transmit a brief acoustic sinusoidal pulse into the atmospheric boundary layer. The SODAR system will then examine return signals over a short period of time to assess any sound waves that are distributed back via any turbulence produced by the thermodynamic structure of the lower layer of the atmosphere.
