3 Key Factors for Maximizing Operation Time and Minimizing Downtime of Wind Turbines

Efficient use of wind power systems is paramount in ensuring a fast Roi. To achieve this it is essential to maximize the system's operating time and keep downtimes at an absolute minimum.

Fundamental to success is the optimizing of critical components, the continuous monitoring of structural elements, and the professional testing of the entire design.

Three facts should be closely considered to achive this aim:

1. Develop more efficiently

Identifying potential weaknesses in critical components already during the design phase of the wind power system, e.g. using advanced analysis and fatigue software

2. Assure component quality

Component quality in the test and production phase can be ensured by using sensors, e.g. for extremely high forces and torques, as well as amplifiers and the corresponding measurement software from HBM.

3. Permanent assess of system status

Monitoring the status of rotor blades, towers and foundations also under water using HBM test and measurement equipment - a perfect insight that grants continuous status assess of turbine and structures
