Within the next years more than 80% of the wind turbines in North America will be operating past the expiration of the manufacturer’s warranty. This means these turbines be maintained under a series of maintenance contracts. The companies responsible for the now aging fleet of wind turbines are wholly responsible for their performance and profitability. A physically small but critically important component on a wind turbine is its wind sensor. The wind sensor, or anemometer is installed atop the turbine’s nacelle and directs the controls to yaw the turbine into the wind for optimal performance.
Wind sensors installed also age and need to be replaced. Sensor technologies have improved and changed over time. Today, Ice Free ultrasonic wind sensors, such as the Ventus from Lufft, can be used to replace old failing wind sensor technology. The challenge comes with integrating a new sensor into a wind turbines control system. Many turbine manufacturers designed and programmed the system controls to operate using a proprietary protocol unique to each turbine make and model. The WindBridge, by NorCal Controls, removes barriers to integration making anemometer replacement simple and easy for any wind turbine. The Lufft wind sensor has been integrated and tested with the NorCal System making it a great option for drop in replacement of a wind turbine control anemometer. This webinar will explain the “WindBridge” technology.
