One of the main concerns of managing wind farms are wind turbines: many times, they come from different manufacturers, which in turn requires multiple supervisory systems in the control center. This makes auditing the turbines’ operational contracts difficult, since data is collected by their own manufacturers. Another issue is reaching the minimum availability and efficiency stipulated by contracts: wind turbines’ protections can operate in abnormal levels even if they haven’t stopped for maintenance.
Elipse Power Renewable is a platform for automating and managing wind farms, and it can integrate all and every turbines’ and IEDs’ manufacturers used in the substations into a single hub. This solution features a standardized modelling tool for wind turbines that strengthen reliability of data in the auditing process, and thus reduces financial losses in contracts with vendors.
Elipse Software’s platform allows Votorantim Energia’s users to monitor the performances of its wind and hydroelectric plants via tablets or smartphones; operation is no longer restricted to the Operations Center
Developed by Energia Automação and based on Elipse Power’s and Elipse Plant Manager’s framework, the ea-Wind solution controls Santa Rosália and São Clemente windfarm complexes
