China leading wind turbine manufacturers Goldwind is the world’s first OEM to receive DNV GL’s Component Certification for its LiDAR Assisted Control system. The certificate is issued according to DNV GL’s own Type and Component Certification Service Specification in conjunction with the Recommended Practice for new Technology Qualification. To achieve the final certification milestone, Goldwind carried out an extensive and technically demanding set of validation activities on full-scale turbine prototypes. The scope of these activities in many cases exceeded the typical scope adopted for certification projects and focused on demonstrating the technology’s performance under the applicable operational limits as well as appropriate mitigation of its risks.

LiDAR, which stands for Light Detection And Ranging, is a technique where a laser source is used to sense the incoming wind field in front of a wind turbine rotor. Its application to wind turbine control systems facilitates the reduction of loads on certain components such as the tower and blades, improves the operational stability and even increases a wind turbine’s annual energy production.
