LIDAR controls turbine yaw to boost power production

LIDAR controls turbine yaw to boost power production
Hailed as 'an industry landmark moment', the feed-forward pitch control of an operational wind turbine with a ZephIR wind LIDAR system has been announced. The system delivers a reduction of structural turbine loads, creating opportunities to achieve a lower cost of energy for the industry through more optimal turbine design.

Inch Cape Offshore Limited Lights Up Wind Farm with ZephIR Lidar, Supported by SgurrEnergy

Inch Cape Offshore Limited Lights Up Wind Farm with ZephIR Lidar, Supported by SgurrEnergy
Inch Cape Offshore Limited has successfully deployed a ZephIR 300 lidar on the historic Bell Rock lighthouse, 17km off the Angus coast.  ZephIR 300 has been mounted on a platform on the north east of the lighthouse using a specially designed support frame measuring wind direction and wind velocity and will augment wind measurements from onshore sources and from a dedicated offshore met mast that is expected to be installed in October 2014. The ZephIR wind data provides a real opportunity to enhance the energy assessment and revenue forecasting, which is an essential part of design refinement and the overall business case for the project.

Transmit up to 100m with a drive current of just 6mA

Transmit up to 100m with a drive current of just 6mA
Extending their portfolio of TOSLINK fibre optic modules, the TOxX1350-series from Toshiba supports signal transmission from DC or any data rates up to 10Mb/s. Transmission distances of 40-100m can be achieved with a drive current of only 6mA and it is possible to operate the transmitter with a drive current of only 1.5mA to achieve transmission distances of 0.2-50m.

Converter launched for wind energy plants

Converter launched for wind energy plants
The PCMDS150 350S24 UK DC/DC converter, based on MTM Power's exisiting PCMDS150 150W converter series, has been specifically designed for use in wind energy plants. The converter is directly supplied from the battery-supported direct current line voltage in wind energy plants. Thereby the wide input voltage range of 100-450VDC allows an optimal utilisation of the existing battery capacity.

Technology could cut cost of offshore wind electricity by 15%

Signalling an important step in lowering the cost of power delivered from offshore installations, GE Power Conversion has announced the successful trials of PassiveBoost - its technology to allow remote power networks to go DC. The technology also paves the way for increasing the electrical output delivered from renewable energy sources in distant, inhospitable places.
