This October, Dave and Barry spent two weeks in China—a trip that brought them from Beijing to Nansan Island, Zhanjiang, Guangdong province and eventually to the Puding county, Anshun, Guizhou province in the country’s southwestern region. The purpose of the visit was two-fold: to install Hybrid XTs on two existing turbines in vastly differently environments, and to attend the 2016 China WindPower Conference.
As the first frost looms, now is the perfect time to consider Hybrid XT Turbine Control Sensors to ensure that your turbines continue to run smoothly, despite the icy ravages of winter.
RNRG has developed a goalpost mounting solution tailored for power performance testing. When used with our 80m XHD TallTower and standard 2.4m Side Mount Booms, the solution achieves full IEC compliance.
RNRG offers wind vane and anemometer retrofit kits for multiple turbines, including Mitsubishi, Siemens, GE, and Gamesa. Each kit includes a sensor, the cable and wiring needed for your application, and a mechanical mounting solution to fit the sensor to your turbine.
RNRG’s product development team is always looking for ways to make customers’ lives easier. Our favorite type of design challenge is when we we get to collaborate directly with customers to solve an immediate issue.
Renewable NRG Systems recently launched a series of retrofit turbine control sensor kits designed to enable our operator customers to deploy Hybrid XT Anemometers and Wind Vanes on their installed turbines pain-free.
Despite the maturation and widespread use of Lidars in the wind energy industry, we continue to hear common misconceptions related to the technology. This list contains the 10 most common myths about wind Lidar and the true story behind them.
The nacelle-mounted Wind Iris Lidar is one of the most intriguing new technologies in the wind industry. But what, exactly, can it do?
Do you suspect that you have underperforming wind turbines? Are you familiar with the causes and consequences of yaw misalignment?
First Wind recently purchased a Wind Iris Lidar to optimize the performance of its wind turbines. This decision was the result of a successful field trial that used data from the nacelle-mounted Lidar to increase the total energy production of a turbine.
