High energy conversion efficiency is crucial for efficient operation of wind turbines. Efficiency is the ratio between the generators' power output and the power consumed. Analyzing the resulting stored raw data provides insights into how the generator's efficiency can be increased. However, this requires adequate test and measurement equipment.
This webinar explores how to determine and increase efficiency through
- Determination of the generators' mechanical input power using torque transducers
- Determination of the generators' electrical output power using the Genesis HighSpeed data acquisition system
- Analysis of resulting raw data
