The Latest in Fault Diagnosis Tactics for Wind Turbine Control Systems

The wind energy industry is become more and more reliant on modern technology. As the technology and stakes continue to rise in wind turbine control systems, there’s a need for new strategies in diagnosing faults. Let’s examine the emerging ways the pitch control ...

The Importance of High & Low Voltage Ride Through in Wind Turbines

High and low voltage ride through refers to situations where a wind turbine is able to overcome an event that would have otherwise shut it down because of a high or low (or nonexistent) power supply. A system that can preserve its ability to generate wind energy is ...

The Difference Between Warnings & Fault Tolerant Control in Turbines

In the past few years, there has been an increase in wind energy demand all over the world. And with so many engineering systems operating long-term subsystems or sensors these days, some sort of failure is inevitable. Fault tolerant control guarantees the system is ...
