Ping Monitor continually monitors the health of wind turbine blades and autonomously alerts maintenance staff when a change in the level of blade damage is detected.
Ping Monitor analyses sound radiated from the wind turbine blades to determine whether the blades are damaged.
Faster detection of individual turbine damage allows repair of damage when it is smaller and easier to correct. No more random inspections of your entire turbine park.
WIND POWER APPLICATION
Using advanced proprietary acoustic based data analytics, Ping Monitor is a world-first device developed to improve preventative maintenance of wind turbine blades, reduce repair costs and help manage power generation operations.
PING MONITOR OFFERS
Continuous Blade Health Monitoring
The current industry practice is to do a visual inspection every 12 – 24 months. This may provide almost two years for new damage to propagate along or through the blade before it’s detection and repair. Ping Monitor reduces the uncertainties and risks between blade inspections.
Ping Monitor listens to wind turbine blades' acoustic signatures to detect changes caused by for example crack propagation, lighting strike damage, erosion and more.
Changes in the blade's acoustic signature are measured and analysed by Ping Monitor's proprietary algorithms.
On-board low earth orbit satellite technology provides robust network connectivity regardless of location.
Data received by the Ping Cloud is further analysed on a site and fleet wide basis, alerts are automatically issued to maintenance staff. Detailed analysis such as trending is available on the Ping Cloud for review at any time.
