Wind Turbine Condition Monitoring System

Posted by Indrayani Pande on April 14th, 2021

Wind turbines (WT) are one of the fastest growing sources of power production in the world and there is a constant need to reduce the cost of operating and maintaining turbines. Condition monitoring (CM) is a tool ordinarily utilized for the early recognition of faults or failures to maximize profitability and minimize vacation. The wind turbine condition monitoring system gives an accurate shaft power measurement, shaft torque, shaft RPM, torsional vibration of the shaft, shaft signature or profile, and shaft bending. Additionally, the wind turbine condition monitoring system can also be installed after the gearbox installation, on a rapid yield shaft, allowing power generated to be measured, as well as providing information on the condition of the generator.

Improved power generation has become the need of great importance in the wind turbine control systems market. With technological advancements, stakeholders in the value chain are aiming to broaden wind project lifespan while lowering operational costs. Subsequently, drivers like innovations in longer and lighter rotor blades and blades with bended tips are generating incremental freedoms for companies operating in the wind turbine control systems market. As such, manufacturers are developing blades that are intended to take maximum advantage of all wind speeds.
