ACTIVEcharge will provide autonomous and self-powered wind turbine blade monitoring services as well as actionable near-real-time information to the turbine controller.
An integrated wireless node (power generator + sensor + wireless transmitter) installed inside a blade transmits the monitoring data wirelessly to the receiver in the turbine nacelle (or elsewhere in turbine housing where the internet is available). The receiver can collect data from multiple sensors. Once the data is collected, data is transmitted to a Cloud platform. We are working with industry partners to integrate our inputs into their control systems.
