How Safe is your Wind Turbine?
Extend the lifetime of your wind turbine and ensure the structural integrity of your wind power plant with HBM professional monitoring solutions and on-site installation services.
HBM offers measurement products and support for testing and monitoring the wind turbines’ structures and components, such as complete SHM (Structural Health Monitoring) or CM (Condition Monitoring) systems.
Read some of our projects and case studies:
- Analysis of Static and Dynamic Behavior of the Jacket's Nodes
- Load and Fatigue Analysis with nCode Software
- Evaluation of Generators Efficiency using a Torque Flange
- Fatigue Test on a Rotor Blade Test Bench
- Pluvial Erosion Test Bench for Rotor Blades
- Heavy Duty Weighing Service for Wind Turbine Structures
cover almost all measurements...
- Strain for fatigue testing and mechanical stress identification
- Torque in gear units to determine the generator's efficiency
- Compressive force to measure the total mass of the structure
- Displacement, acceleration, tilt...
... of different values in most components,
- Tower, foundation, rotor blades, gear units, drive train (inverters) and others
- Mechanical loads and measurable variables
- During manufacturing, transportation, operation and service life
required in wind turbine monitoring
- Components testing
- Load assessment
- Structural design & analysis
- Individual pitch control
