Monitor wind turbine tower deflection

Monitor wind turbine tower deflection

Angle sensors report excessive tower deflection during high wind conditions

The solution

Strong gusts of wind and sustained high winds during storms can exert strong forces on the tower of a wind turbine. Balluff's inclination sensors offer non-contact angle measurement to indicate the deflection from vertical and the corresponding amount of stress on the tower structure.

The features

  • Detects the change in angle with respect to the horizontal
  • High accuracy over a measurement range up to 360° (one rotation)
  • Compact, robust metal housing enables simple installation
  • Absolute measuring signal: correct position reported upon power up
