Following the launch of its new technology thunderstorm detection system which has significant benefits for the wind energy sector,meteorological equipment specialist Biral’s Alec Bennett has produced a technical white paper on the success of this system in detecting imminent lightning.
Entitled ‘Warning of imminent lightning using single-site meteorological observations’, the paper discusses the effectiveness of meteorological observations made at a site to warn personnel of imminent nearby lightning.
The company’s BTD-300 Thunderstorm Detection system has the ability to detect all forms of lightning within an 83km radius, including warning of potential overhead lightning. The equipment is immune to man-made false alarms making it highly reliable in safety critical situations such as during turbine construction and maintenance.

Lightning warning using single-site observations is especially useful where access to real-time data from remote observations is not possible or cannot be guaranteed.
