Sensor selection - Power Generation (wind turbine) industry

Following are the top features required of a quality vibration sensor in the Power Generation (wind turbine) industry, along with the reasons why:
  • Very low frequency response (-6 dB at 1,0 Hz): Germanischer Lloyd requirement
  • Small and compact physical size: Restricted space locations
  • Packaged components: Simplicity for wind turbine OEM's
  • Integral cable: Costly to travel to site for a loose connector
Good - General purpose monitoring
  • CMSS WIND 100 10 (fig 1)
  • CMSS WIND 100 15 (fig 2)
Best - Sensitivity for analysis:
