Current measuring transducer reduces wind turbine costs

26 September 2015

The ACT20C module from Weidmüller enables effective and strategic monitoring and optimisation of large-scale systems and processes, such as wind turbines, via ac and dc current readings.

Wind power installations are suitable candidates for the new ACT20C. In a lot of cases wind farms are situated in remote locations on land and at sea subject to extreme weather conditions, so onsite and immediate maintenance and monitoring isn't always possible. With the transducer, it is possible to implement more effective monitoring and observation from a distance.

The transducer can contribute to a reduction in equipment ‘wear and tear' with its ability to alter a turbine's motors (for pitch adjustment), device heaters or brakes, with information concerning their utilisation and operating performance.

The ACT20C is a crucial piece of technology that detects overloads or engine and brake anomalies at an early stage. It can also respond promptly to poorly performing cooling fans or rotor blade de-icing.

The new ACT20C current measuring transducer uses True rms, to produce accurate readings of dc and ac currents, even when the waveforms are distorted.
