Periodic Reporting for period 1 - EOLOGIX (The first wireless wind turbine blade sensor for automatic, real-time condition-based monitoring)
Reporting period: 2019-09-01 to 2020-08-31
Generating more green energy from both new and retrofitted wind turbines is the main benefit for society from our product. Increased production and continuous condition monitoring contribute to more CO2 neutral energy and a safe environment.
I would add further info about the state of art (comparison between the state of art explained within the proposal and the current existing)
Current systems rely on either sensors mounted in the blade root (inside the turbine) and measure - by design - on one or two points per blade quite close to the root. Other available systems require the placement of optical fibers which do not offer long-term stability and need to be routed through the entire blade and therefore require high mounting effort.
Our new product can be easily mounted as a retrofit solution but also be mounted to new turbines a product option. Wireless data transmission makes physical wiring inside the blade obsolete. Also, the biggest signals to pick up in terms of vibrations and motion are located at the blade tip where no existing system can be mounted.
