Wind Turbine Control

Ultrasonic Wind Sensors for accurate feedback and control of wind turbines

Maximise Turbine Efficiency

Use precision wind speed and direction information to automatically steer the turbine into wind and control the blades for maximum efficiency according to current wind speed.

Increase Turbine Safety

In storm and high wind conditions most wind turbines are shut down to ensure system safety. Accurate real-time feedback of wind speed is essential to ensure the system can be shutdown as required.
