Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of rotor blades is a complex and demanding task that requires both very good hardware and professional data analysis to be able to make precise statements about structural damage to the rotor blade in an early stage.
If you cannot answer all of the following questions satisfactorily for yourself, an initial discussion with us is certainly worthwhile:
How well do you know the current condition of your rotor blades?
Do you know how to deal with yield losses due to aerodynamic imbalances?
Do you already operate an active fleet monitoring of all your WTG to detect anomalies at an early stage?
Is rotor blade-based ice detection of interest to you as a pure software add-on?
Do you already use all available data for holistic structural monitoring?
The Wölfel SHM supports you optimally in answering these questions.
WHY ARE PHOENIX CONTACT AND WÖLFEL
THE RIGHT PARTNERS FOR STRUCTURAL HEALTH MONITORING?
Seamless integration: Integrate our SHM seamlessly based on Phoenix Contact's PLCnext Technology.
The cooperation is distinguished by the fact that Phoenix Contact offers innovative automation and connection technology for equipping wind farms and Wölfel Wind Systems has built up a core competence in data analysis that is unique in the market since decades. The combination of these competencies generates significant added value for wind farm operators.
"Wölfel was one of the first competent companies on the market to offer monitoring for offshore structures.
From the design of the system to the delivery and installation of the sensor technology to the data analysis and engineering evaluation of the results, Wölfel has
supported us for many years. Our experience with Wölfel's system has been very good."
Intelligent data analysis - supported by artificial intelligence (AI) methods - determines the current condition of each rotor blade.
Display of the KPIs via an intuitive "traffic light system"
Detection of structural anomalies (i.e. damage due to structural changes) and of vibration anomalies
Online KPIs to determine the aerodynamic imbalance during operation of the wind turbine
