Technical Concepts with Switchgears in Wind Turbines
Wind power plants contain - in addition to the large generator - numerous electrical components that ensure safe and reliable operation. Examples are yaw, pitch, cooling, heating components etc. Extreme electrical and mechanical requirements call for rugged and yet cost-optimized concepts. Diagnostics information must enable systematic preventive maintenance and avoid shutdowns.
Use cases show ways of using industrial controls efficiently so that communication via the PLC to the operator can ensure safe and reliable operation of the wind power plant.
