WISE Remote Facility Monitoring Solution for a Wind Power Plant

Posted by Kari Grosser on Apr 4, 2018 11:00:00 AM

In order to reduce the dependence on traditional coal-fired and nuclear power generation, governments around the world have been actively working on the development of renewable energy. Among the various renewable energy sources, the wind power is regarded as the most mature technology, and its cost of electricity is closest to traditional power generation, resulting in a booming wind power industry. Since wind power plants are often located in the sparsely populated remote areas, in addition to the three main components (tower, blade and generator), each wind turbine has to be equipped with Remote Terminal Unit (RTU) to be used as the human machine interface (HMI) for the on-site operation and to collect information for the managers in central control room to remotely monitor all devices in the wind farm.

Reducing the Electricity Consumption of Electric Motor-Drive Systems (EMDSs)

Posted by Kari Grosser on Mar 15, 2018 10:00:00 AM

EMDSs are widely used in various applications such as industrial, building and appliance applications. Pumps, fans, air compressors, conveyor belts, lifts and air conditioning systems are all examples of mechanical operations that benefit from the power-generating ability of EMDSs. However, according to an International Energy Agency survey, one drawback of EMDSs is that they consume a tremendous amount of electricity, accounting for almost 70% of all industrial electricity consumption. This is because EMDSs always run at full spinning speed under continuous power, even when the end device requires very little power. Therefore, variable-frequency drives (VFDs), which first appeared in the early twentieth century,have been utilized to accelerate or decelerate the spinning speed of EMDSs.
