PC-Control: TwinCAT “Wind Library” reduces engineering expenditure for 1.5 MW wind turbine
Wind turbine manufacturer Zhejiang Windey relies on Beckhoff technology
The 1.5 MW wind turbine from Zhejiang Windey has a classic design: a three-blade upwind rotor with horizontal main shaft and three-point bearing. The drive train consists of a three-stage planetary gear and a double-fed induction generator. As an actuator for power or speed control, the plant has an independent pitch system that also encompasses the servo drives for the blade adjustment. The plant is characterized by reliable and stable operation, high efficiency, good grid compatibility and a robust design for use under extreme environmental conditions. The automation of the plant is based on a CX1020 Embedded PC with inline-connected EtherCAT I/O terminals as well as TwinCAT automation software including the TwinCAT “wind libraries”.
