Undertaking measurement campaigns on running wind turbines in order to reliably evaluate their efficiency, functionality and remaining lifetime is also part of Fraunhofer IWES’ spectrum. This is done, for example, by carrying out accredited mechanical load and power performance measurements. Special measurement campaigns on the relevant system components are also possible alongside customer-specific electrical and mechanical.
The Application Center for Wind Energy Field Measurement is an accredited testing laboratory for mechanical fatigue measurements on operating wind turbines according to ISO 17025.
