B&R's new solutions for azimuth control minimise wear by optimising the yaw system.

Demonstration New solutions presented at WindEnergy expo

Jan 27, 2017

The demonstration showcased how the wind turbine wear can be minimised through optimal yaw control.

B&R made a demonstration recently at the WindEnergy expo in Hamburg. The demonstration showcased how the wind turbine wear can be minimised through optimal yaw control. This is made possible by utilising intelligent control concepts based on the ACOPOS P3 servo drive. The drive is designed to operate flawlessly under harsh offshore conditions, such as continuous 1 g vibrations. Additionally, the coated circuit boards are impervious to humid, salty air. Using the modular software blocks of mapp technology, wind turbine manufacturers can implement active yaw systems with minimal time and effort. Speaking on this, Peter Kronberger, Global Technology Manager, B&R, said, “Joined by intelligent links, mapp components make software development easier and faster. By placing a wide variety of standard functions at your fingertips with only a few configurations to make, mapp eliminates many potential sources of error.” APROL PDA is an open and scalable system for process data acquisition. All the data generated by a wind turbine is collected seamlessly in a central location.
