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
