Wind flow around complex terrain could potentially induce significant errors in Lidar wind speed reconstruction algorithm, due to the flow homogeneity assumption over the Lidar volume, in estimating wind speed and direction. WINDCUBE™ Lidar data in FCR® mode provides better correlation of the data with co-located anemometer measurements. In this paper, several case studies will be presented, where FCR® was applied to WINDCUBE™ V2 profiler data.
