Bachmann is increasing the efficiency of condition monitoring by integrating it into plant control. Condition-monitoring systems (CMS) allow increasing the availability and efficiency of wind turbines. Bachmann Monitoring combines signals from CMS-sensor unit with the operating status, leading to better diagnostic accuracy and increased CMS efficiency.
Condition monitoring already benefits operators at wind energy plants. Detecting faults early on monitored components prevents major damage and lengthy unscheduled downtimes that often involve considerable costs. The quality of the maintenance improves, thereby having a positive effect on the lifespan of the systems. What’s more, insurance companies usually reward CMS-equipped installations with lower premiums.
The benefits can be increase even more through the holistic integration of plant controls and CMS. However, to achieve real synergies, data collected by the CMS must be available to the automation system and vice versa, without need for interfaces. The Bachmann CMS W-Guard and AIC212 CMS module, for example, can integrate without difficulty into Bachmann electronic’s comprehensive M1 automation family. Thus more reliable statements are possible and that improves CMS efficiency.
