A turbine constantly adjusts its blade orientation (also called pitch) to both the wind speed and rotation speed to optimize the aerodynamics and maximize power production.
Therefore, the accurate control of blade pitch for a wind turbine is critical to proper operation and optimum production. The robust design and engineered quality of the SPTS ensures reliable communication between the hub and the turbine controller during operation and through any environmental conditions.
The most important features and capabilities of an SPTS include:
- high reliability of contact hardware for both the power and the signal transfer;
- ability to operate in any environmental conditions;
- Quick and easy maintenance without requiring frequent inspections.
