Designed specifically for operation in wind turbines, KK Wind Solutions’ 3rd generation accelerometer delivers industry-leading reliability and precision.
Based on 35 years of experience in electrical systems for wind, KK Wind Solutions’ accelerometer technology is tailored to meet the specific challenges in a wind turbine.
Our long track record, the use of robust components and a thorough testing regime makes the WTC3 Accelerometer a safe choice for your turbine.
The WTC3 Accelerometer accurately supervises the low frequency accelerations of your wind turbine nacelle, which may indicate wear and tear, bearing failures and potential electrical problems. The measured accelerations can be continually read out by CAN communication interface, allowing for early detection and diagnosis of potential problems to take remedial action and minimize your turbines’ downtime.
The module is typically used to open the turbine safety loop when the nacelle accelerations exceed a threshold value defined by the customer.
The accelerometer can also act as a measurement device for active tower damping systems as well as other algorithms which can benefit from measuring the nacelle acceleration with high resolution and sample rate.
