Project overview:

Oceanographic HF Radar Data Preservation in Wind Turbine Interference Mitigation

Awardee:

CODAR Ocean Sensors

Started:

Q3, 2021

Technical Challenge Area:

Environment and Conflicting Use

Completed:

Q1, 2023

Synopsis:

OSW turbines can cause interference in coastal oceanographic high frequency radars (HFR), which are used to measure the current of the ocean at the surface. In this project, CODAR will develop and test a mitigation method that is capable of removing the wind turbine interference while preserving most, if not all, of the oceanographic data.

Target Outcomes:

1
Develop a wind turbine interference approach, simulate testing the approach, and complete a mitigation field test.
2
Mitigate wind turbine interference in coastal high frequency radars while preserving as much oceanographic data as possible.
3
Mitigate the impact of wind turbine interference to some of the secondary data outputs, namely, wave measurements.
