Industries & Applications

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.

Recommended wind sensors for wind turbine control...

WindSonic Metal Ultrasonic Wind Sensor

Gill WindSonic is a low-cost 2-axis ultrasonic anemometer, providing wind speed (0-60m/s) and direction data in a robust housing. This anemometer has no moving parts, offering maintenance-free operation in a wide range of applications.

WindObserver 70 3d sonic anemometers

WindObserver 70 will monitor wind speeds up to 70m/s (157mph), with an optional high-power anti-icing heating system. WindObserver70 is available with a range of mounting and connection options and has been accepted for service by the FAA and CAA for reporting of surface wind in airport applications.
