Long-range Doppler wind light detection and ranging (lidar) measurements at a wind turbine were carried out for the first time. The turbine was of the type Areva M5000 and is located at a site near the coastline in Bremerhaven, in the northern part of Germany. This wind turbine is the prototype for the German offshore test site ‘‘alpha ventus’’ and has a rated power of 5 MW. Information about the ambient wind field before and after this multimegawatt wind turbine was obtained. In this paper the measurement technique is discussed and the results of measurements in the diurnal layer and in the stable nocturnal boundary layer are shown. The main focus of this work is to determine the reduction of the wind speed at certain distances downstream from the rotor.
