TNO Defensie en Veiligheid Publication year 2010 Abstract A wind turbine placed in the vicinity of a primary radar system (PSR) can impact the performance of that system. This paper discusses criteria by which wind turbine placement can be assessed. The effects considered are desensitization overhead and shadowing. The criteria have been implemented in a wind turbine acceptance program that is going to be applied in The Netherlands. We discuss adverse effects that wind turbines placed in the vicinity of a PSR may have on the radar performance, as well as mitigating measures. Subsequently, the models used to assess the influence of the wind turbine are described Subject RadarWind turbinesRadarPrimary radar systemsShadowingAdverse effectsRadar performance To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:9cd6a157-f9df-45ee-ba82-8ef4e390385c TNO identifier 347702 Source IEEE International Radar Conference, May 10-14, 2010, Washington DC, USA, 1355-1361 Document type conference paper Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
