WindMETER - Optical Wind Blade Monitoring System
WindMETER system is a reliable monitoring solution specifically designed to monitor wind generator blades. The system consists of a low consumption optoelectronic interrogator suitable for operation over 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 in every 10 ms.
WindMETER can be integrated into a wide array of applications, leveraging solutions such as:
- Pitch control
- Condition monitoring
- Load assessment
- Blade design validation
- Vibration monitoring
- Ice Detection
FBG sensor technology perfectly matches the requirements for blade monitoring due to its intrinsic characteristics:
- Multiplexing of different parameters in a single chain
- Immunity to EMI/lightning and electrical isolation
- Embedding capability during blade manufacturing
- Signal integrity
