Trends, Windurance

Converting wind into an energy source has proven to be a viable and profitable solution for sustainability. It’s also an inexpensive energy source -- and prices keep going lower, thanks to emerging wind turbine technology. After topping out at 7 cents per kilowatt ...

Wind Turbine Pitch Control Systems as a Fault Diagnosis Tool

An underappreciated part of your wind turbine system, the pitch actuator is mainly responsible for adjusting the wind turbine pitch angle. But when the pitch actuator faults (often through no fault of its own), the dynamic response of the pitch angle either slows ...

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 ...
