The WindMETER Solution: Optical Wind Blade Monitoring System

The WindMETER system is a reliable monitoring solution specifically designed to monitor wind generator blades. It combines sensors and data acquisition hardware to provide real-time measurements, and is designed to integrate and upstream the customer’s system.

The solution consists of a low consumption optoelectronic interrogator, suitable for operation over an extended temperature range, and a set of Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) strain and temperature sensors.

This innovative wind-blade monitoring system is characterized by its long-lasting performance, attained by a built-in standard, which allows all measured data to be auto-calibrated every 10 ms.

The WindMETER can be integrated in a wide array of applications, such as:

  • Pitch control
  • Condition monitoring
  • Load assessment
  • Blade design validation
  • Ice detection
