Entura has released validation reports of the SodarF3D™ at three deployments.
Analysis has been undertaken at three sites; one in complex terrain and two at
simple locations. As with other validations studies, the conclusion is that
the performance of the Sodar unit has been strong. Correlations are tight, bias is
low and availability is acceptable.
The following table summarises Entura’s recommendations on the SodarF3D.
Bankable wind report – stand-alone use
Only for low risk applications
