Turbit Measurement System (TMS)
Detection of Yaw Misalignment through load measurements
1. The Problem
More than half of the turbines show a systematic yaw misalignment to the wind
Turbines do not produce as much energy as they could
The lifetime of these turbines decreases due to additional and unwanted loads
Yaw misalignment detection is expensive and not simple? Not necessarily!
2. The Solution
Turbit Systems installs a vibration sensor and a data logger inside the nacelle.
The true wind direction is then calculated from the vibration data using a revolutionary Turbit Measurement System (TMS) algorithm.
Average increase of power of 2%
Reduced Loads and longer Lifetime
