PC-Control: Real-time communication enables fast reaction times for wind farm applications
Fiber optic EtherCAT networking for efficient and flexible wind turbines
The European Wind Energy Association expects further dynamic expansion of wind power in Europe through 2020, predicting a 64 % increase to installed wind power capacity. Part of this development includes dozens of turbines with a total output of 217 MW, recently installed on a wind farm in Scotland by the French company, Alstom. Fast EtherCAT communication and the corresponding Beckhoff I/O components form the backbone of this onshore project, one of the largest in Europe.
