CMSWIND - Case Study


Courtesy of Asociación Empresarial Eólica (AEE)


The CMSWIND project consisted of the development of an advanced monitoring system for rotating components in wind turbines by means of the application of novel non-destructive testing techniques that were not previously being used in the wind sector. This new Condition Monitoring system improved component reliability by up to 50%, using a blend of vibration analysis (VA), motor current signature analysis (MCSA) and acoustic emission (AE) technologies to monitor operating conditions.

Year of implementation: 2012
