Energy technology: wind power, generators, large motors

In order to ensure high efficiency in power plants and large motors, predictive maintenance is an essential factor. Therefore, very high requirements are placed on the sensors in terms of accuracy, reliability and compactness. Sensors from Micro-Epsilon have proved invaluable with regards to safe plant operation in the test bench and in high volume applications.

Rotor stress tests in the test bench

Test rigs have been developed for load tests on wind turbine rotor blades and simulate the real loads caused by high winds and weather. The tip of the rotor blade can be distorted by up to 10m due to mechanical ...
