Wind Turbine: Mast Sway Monitoring

DIS_windmill_large

Modern wind turbines are required by law
to use accelerometers to monitor swaying
of the mast due to wind and (offshore) wave
action. When these sensors measure values
that exceed a certain threshold, a signal is
given to ‘feather’ the blades, putting the wind
turbine into a safe state.
DIS Sensors provides added value to turbine
producers in the area of customer-specific
filtering and safety circuit interfacing.

Other Applications:
agricultural machinery, wind mills, containers
