Measuring Rotation Velocity of Wind Turbine Blades by Rugged Inductive Sensors
So, we need special sensors.
Requirements of the sensors are:
• Being non-contact
• High strength
What is the best solution?
Rugged inductive proximity sensor are suitable for this application.
The features of these sensors:
•IP68 or IP69K rated
•One-piece M18-diameter stainless-steel bodies
•A cost-effective alternative to traditional rotary-encoder technology
•Particularly appropriate for the harsh •environment, on land and at sea
•Detection range: 10 mm
The function of the sensor:
It detects the mounting bolts as they pass the sensing face and measures the speed of the blades.
The sensor's configuration:
The sensor is configured with an industry-standard PNP normally-open interface.
Connection to the control system:
The sensor is connected to the turbine's control systems through an integral M12 connector and PUR-sheathed cable. So, easy removal and replacement during routine maintenance will be possible.
