In January 2015, Fulcrum3D released a new data version for the SodarF3D.
The fleet wide summary includes verification results for over 25 mast/sodar pairs which is a significant and substantial body of knowledge to demonstrate consistent and sustained performance. Importantly:
- Wind speed correlation slope is consistently in and around 1.000;
- Wind speed correlation bias is constantly in and around 0.0%;
- Wind speed correlation cooefficient of determination (R²) consistently above 0.960 and with the majority over 0.970;
- Wind shear consistently matching the adjacent mast;
- Wind direction correlation showing strong match to mast (slope of 1.000 and R2 consistently above 0.995);
- Consistently high data availability over the range of heights captured by the SodarF3D.
Also, strong performance is gained at both simple and complex sites including excellent performance over a range of site conditions.
