Paper Title:
From the Inside, Out Use of Optical Measuring Techniques for Wind Turbine Development
  Abstract

Current trends in the wind turbine industry demand that manufacturers and related research facilities increase development efficiency whilst minimizing production costs. A key component developed is the blade, which needs to efficiently capture the wind energy whilst being able to survive severe weather conditions. More recently larger blades have been used, where main advantages include an increase in wind capture efficiency, a reduction in the installation and reduction in maintenance costs per MW. This paper outlines the main principles behind optical measurement techniques employed, influencing factors for using this technology, and presents the importance of the results achieved thus far and describes ongoing development activities.
