Wind Turbine Monitoring System Gets Certified

August 26, 2014 By Linda Hardesty

Turbine energy manageRenewable NRG Systems attained DNV GL certification for its vibration-based wind turbine condition monitoring system (CMS), TurbinePhD.

By using a certified CMS such as TurbinePhD, wind farm owners can detect gearbox issues before they cause significant damage.

The DNV GL Guideline for the Certification of Condition Monitoring Systems for Wind Turbines establishes a basis for the development and installation of CMS in wind turbines. The guidelines also provide rules for the interpretation of vibration data and the storage of turbine health data, as well as a process to determine when critical values are exceeded, creating an alert.
