ACoS - Holistic condition monitoring system for wind turbines

Content

For a long time, utilities have counted on extensive condition monitoring of all major components in their conventional power plants. Thereby they have ensured the value of their equipment and increase the efficiency of their plant operation. Rexroth now applies this holistic concept to wind turbines to ensure early damage detection. ACoS, the Advanced Condition Monitoring System monitors the complete drive train starting at the rotor blades and covering the main shaft bearing, the gearbox, the coupling, and generator bearings. Combining the data acquisition and data processing and embedding them into a unified condition monitoring system is the key concept behind ACoS.
