BLADEcontrol - Weidmüller Monitoring Systems GmbH


Wind Industry Profile of


BLADEcontrol® is a system to continuously monitor the condition of rotor blades on wind turbines. Its main features are damage detection including the fast detection of typical damages after lightning strikes, detection of ice-foundation on the blades and detection of dynamical overloads and temporary imbalance.
BLADEcontrol® provides the results of the analysis to the machine control using a Bit vector, allowing an active reaction of the wind turbine. Independently, the turbine operator is informed via SMS or e-mail in case of deviations from normal.

BLADEcontrol® is increasingly used as an ice detection system and replaces present solutions. Unique selling points are the measurement of ice-foundation on the blade itself and the possibility to measure even when the turbine is not operating. It just needs some wind to blow.

BLADEcontrol® detects the point where ice is no longer present on the blades, allowing restarting the turbine even at night or in foggy conditions without having to visually inspect on site. This together with a very exact measurement significantly reduces the turbine's ice downtimes and at the same time avoids risky ice-droppings. Payback times are accordingly short.
