Sensoria™

Value and Efficiency Start With Blade Condition Monitoring

Sensoria™ makes it easier than ever to maximize the uptime, performance, and safety of your wind turbine blades.

The industry norm of conducting annual blade inspections leaves site operators in the dark about actual blade integrity, raising operating & maintenance costs while reducing generating capacity.

Ideal for wind site managers, fleet engineers, and operations, procurement, and logistics teams, Sensoria™ simplifies the blade management process, helping you make more informed integrity and inventory planning decisions.

Cutting-Edge Monitoring Technology and Intuitive Data Reports

Technology

Sensoria™ utilizes advanced acoustic emission (AE) monitoring technology through a data collection system installed in the turbine hub, and AE sensors installed inside the blade bulkhead. The sensors “listen” to the acoustic signals that components produce during normal operations, and detect and track changes to the signal that indicate the onset and growth of damages. Damages that can be detected include cracking & delaminations, active leading-edge erosion, high energy impacts, lightning strikes, and blade skin ruptures and perforations.

Different kinds of damages result in different kinds of acoustic signals (for example, a lightning strike will result in a large amplitude and energy signal, while a rupture to the blade skin will be detectable by using a time-driven data [TDD] quantity), enabling AE technology to characterize the damage type, severity, and location down to a single blade.

After damage is detected, users receive real-time mobile alerts to enable immediate action. All blade integrity data – from a single blade to an entire turbine fleet – is stored in the Sensoria™ Insights data portal, making blade data accessible and actionable from anywhere in the world.

With Sensoria™, wind energy companies can enhance and streamline their processes throughout the blade value chain. With applications for site managers, technicians, fleet engineers, and procurement and logistics teams, Sensoria™ helps you gain intelligent insights from edge-to-edge of your operations.

Applications

Detect & Locate Damages in Real-Time

Site managers and technicians get instant notifications at the onset of damages to make more informed maintenance decisions

Artboard 117

Access and Track Integrity Data

Fleet engineers can maintain visibility of fleetwide blade integrity to identify potential problems before they worsen

Optimize Inventory and Logistics

Procurement and logistics personnel realize time and cost efficiencies with more informed inventory planning

Site Management & Technicians

Detect & Locate Damages in Real-Time

Collecting inspection data only once a year or less makes it difficult for site management and operations teams to drive proactive maintenance, forcing them to instead rely on costlier and less effective reactive maintenance techniques. With 25% of component failures causing 95% of downtime, it’s crucial that site managers have access to timely, accurate blade condition that can help them forecast failures prior to large-scale damage to their most important components.

Fleet Engineers

Access and Track Integrity Data

Fleet engineers seeking to enhance turbine fleet performance need access to a variety of blade condition and reliability analytics. With access to all historical blade condition data through the Sensoria™ Insights portal, fleet engineers can prioritize the damages that are early indicators of fleet-wide concerns, helping them improve the reliability and performance of their entire fleet.
