  • Met mast for PTP wind farm in Poland was successfully installed and commissioned in May 2018!

    By on 25. May 2018

      It took quite some time to get the building permission for the met mast at the PTP site in Poland. Finally the old met mast has been dismantled and a refurbished met mast with new sensor has been erected and commissioned end of May 2018. Although iSpin measurement started already in autumn 2017 now with the commissioning of...

  • iSpin Best Practice Report available at DTU Orbit since April 2018

    By on 28. April 2018

    Part of the DTU scope within the PTP is to create and improve a Best Practice Document for using iSpin Spinner Anemometer for Power Curve verification of wind turbines. For access follow this link: http://orbit.dtu.dk/en/publications/spinner-anemometer–best-practice(bb1d65b2-c5d9-488d-994a-4c817983293f).html   You can  find the abstract of the initial Best Practice for iSpin Spinner Anemometer here: Spinner anemometry is used to measure traceable and...

  • Spinner Anemometry – Uncertainty Analysis by DTU

    By on 26. April 2018

    The spinner anemometer is an integrated instrument on a wind turbine that can measure traceable calibrated and free wind speed according to the standard IEC61400-12-2. The uncertainty analysis of spinner anemometer wind speed measurements is due to the integrated six sensors and unlinear conversion algorithm rather complex. An uncertainty analysis method has been proposed which considers all potential influential...

  • Nacelle LiDAR installed and commissioned in Offshore wind farm for PTP at 06.02.17

    By on 10. February 2018

    DTU managed to install and commission the nacelle LiDAR at the offshore turbine for the Performance Transparency Project (PTP). With this installation the evaluation of the Spinner Transfer Functions starts officially for the V112 under offshore conditions.   Thanks to all involved people, which made this happen! Special thanks to DTU and Parkwind!

  • Installation tolerances of iSpin sensors at Turbine Type A) kept within +/- 10mm

    By on 15. December 2017

    Based on very detailed working instructions and our technicians it was possible to achieve all 30 iSpin system sensor installations at V112 within +/- 10 mm.  This narrow installation tolerances allow us to transfer the iSpin measurement characteristic (i.e. the Spinner Transfer Function) from one turbine to the other and finally make comparisons also with other PTP wind farms...

  • Poster at WindEurope 2017 (Amsterdam, Netherlands)

    By on 20. November 2017

    Due to the unique position and the measurement principle the iSpin spinner anemometer technology allows to overcome the limitations of the conventional nacelle anemometry when it comes to power performance evaluation of wind turbines. Several field test results show that with the iSpin technology it is possible to asses and compare performance behavior of wind park turbines – even...

  • Installation tolerances for iSpin sensors at PTP Turbine Type B) kept within +/- 20mm

    By on 12. November 2017

    Except for a few installations all iSpin sensors have been installed for the PTP Turbine type B (Enercon E82-2.3) within+/- 20mm of the reference distances. 29 iSpin systems have been installed in 3 different wind farms all over Europe! This narrow installation tolerances allow us to transfer the iSpin measurement characteristic (i.e. the Spinner Transfer Function) from one turbine...

  • 10 iSpin commissioned for PTP at complex farm in Portugal

    By on 29. October 2017

    The 2nd wind farm with Enercon E82-2.3MW turbines has been equipped with iSpin for the Performance Transparency Project (PTP). Ten (10) turbines, two of them close to a reference met mast have been equipped with iSpin systems. Special thanks to the service technician for their support!
