Wind Measurements in Front of the Rotor with iSpin: Higher Yield, Lower Loads, Better Insights
The iSpin technology at the spinner allows owners to accurately measure the most important input parameter of wind turbine operation: the wind speed and direction. This allows operators to determine undetected yaw misalignment. After correcting the yaw misalignment, owners can tap the full potential of the wind turbines, reduce damaging loads, and decrease repair cost.
Combining yaw misalignment with turbulence intensity and inflow angles in all wind sectors, the iSpin technology turns the wind turbines into virtual wind met masts. Finally, the iSpin technology is capable of determining IEC compliant power curves as well as performance monitoring during operations of the wind turbine life time.
Attend this webinar to learn:
- There is an average 1.5-2% improvement potential from yaw alignment correction
- The differences and effectiveness of common wind measurement technologies
- The importance of measuring wind in front of the rotor for the most accurate results
Karl Fatrdla, Head of Sales, Romo Wind AG
With a degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Technical University in Vienna, Austria Karl started as a project manager before he slowly transitioned to sales and key account management of large accounts. In 2008 he started finally in the wind industry as a Director Sales for Eastern Europe at Vestas before he joined the dynamic and young Romo Wind team as a Head of Sales. In this function Karl built up sales entities for Romo Wind in all major countries in Europe.
