Control and Safety

Turbine Controller – Based on the expertise of over 30,000 installed wind turbine control systems, the Nextwind designs incorporate robust solid state hardware with high MTBF, specifically designed for the unique wind turbine installation environment, able to run through vibration, contamination, interference, and extreme temperatures.  The turbine controller is equipped with software which ensures safety while maximizing run-time, based on extensive Nextwind experience with fleet wide faults and operational conditions.

Pitch Control – Precise control of blades together and individually to maximize power capture and minimize damaging loads.  Quick and painless service with remote troubleshooting and test, easy access and parts replacement, and standard parts for global spare parts management.

SCADA – Smart data accessibility and analysis give the owner and operator the tools they need to keep their fleet finely tuned: operating with maximum output and avoiding breakdowns.

CMS – All Nextwind turbines over 1MW include a condition monitoring system option.  This advanced monitoring and analysis opens up even greater possibilities for predictive maintenance and optimization of maintenance resources.
