CAMOS inter-array monitoring for wind turbines

Passive system, resistant to inclement weather, sustainable and remote.

Through fiber optics and our CAMOS200 system, we can reduce the maintenance of your wind generation assets to the maximum without neglecting the sustainability and electromagnetic compatibility of the equipment. And, in addition, it allows us to monitor in real time with more points of information for prediction and prevention than other sensing systems.

Main features

  • Measurement of capacitive currents (module, phase), current balance of the system, surges, harmonic analysis and dynamic classification of the cable (temperature).
  • Obtaining information in real time on the operating status of the cable, storing it in the client’s cloud or in a SCADA system (69870-5-104).
  • Identified anomalies can trigger actions on planned maintenance tasks and correct conditions before failure occurs.
  • Facilitation of the discrimination of the faulty inter-array cable within the entire park, 24/7 and remotely.
  • Protection of wind turbines and cables by ‘de-energizing’ the faulty cables.
  • Pre-location of the distance within the inter-array cable where the fault has originated in real time.
  • Sequential determination of the fault phase, the minor and major part, and the fault point.
  • Value contribution to existing installations through digitization thanks to the use of real and precise data.
  • Integration of all measurements in the same system (current and temperature).
  • Increase in the data capture frequency (7000 Hz), which allows increasing the sensitivity to harmonics.
  • Secure and direct connection to the cloud or to SCADA interfaces for data management.
  • Passive sensors that do not require additional power sources.

Lumiker is part of the FLOAT&M project

Lumiker participates in the FLOAT&M project, sponsored by the Basque Country Energy Cluster and coordinated by SAITEC Offshore Technologies. The challenge of this initiative consists in the creation of a comprehensive solution based on advanced technologies to optimize the O&M of floating wind power:

  • Increased reliability
  • Condition monitoring of wind assets
  • Minimization of non-operation hours
  • Reduced need for access to the wind platform
  • Increased worker safety
  • Extension of the useful life of assets
