The project will develop a new technique, based on acoustic waves and laser (AWL), for detection of icing on wind turbine blades. The technique combines two different methods of ice detection, thereby enabling a more efficient de-icing. A project group with members from Chalmers University of Technology, Chalmers Industrial and Wind Vector will develop theoretical models, methods and algorithms, and also build a demonstrator for an AWL-based sensor system.
