Wind Energy

The installation and testing of wind turbines in the wind energy industry, may use an array of equipment such as pressure gauges and temperature calibrators.  In addition to pressure gauges, and temperature calibrators, we carry a variety of calibration and test equipment used in the wind energy industry.  If you require test equipment or calibration services, we can help recommend the option that is best for your needs.

About the Wind Energy Industry

Since it was first introduced over a century ago, wind energy has increased in popularity and today, wind turbines are becoming a more common sight than ever before. Because kinetic energy is harnessed to generate power, we can make full use of what nature has given to us, especially in areas that experience high wind speeds. This renewable source of energy transforms kinetic energy into rotational energy, which is then converted into electricity through the process of electromagnetism.

Over the years, the capacity of wind turbines has been steadily increasing, both onshore and offshore. There remains huge potential for generating wind energy in offshore locations. As the largest source of renewable energy in the United States, wind energy is not only clean, but highly cost-effective as well. No pollutants or greenhouse gases are produced as a result of harnessing this energy, and it can be used to send power across the grid.

Why the Wind Energy Industry Needs Calibration Products and Services

In the wind energy industry, here are some calibration needs and testing applications you may face:

  • During the construction and installation of wind turbines, calibration needs to be carried out to ensure the hydraulic systems will work properly. This is attributable to a number of factors, including turbine blade angle. With pressure transducers and switches, these factors can be controlled to a high degree of precision.· We carry deadweight testers, pressure gauges and temperature calibrators that can all be used in the calibration of these field instruments.
  • It is important to take into consideration the onsite temperature where wind turbines are based. As such, instruments should ideally be calibrated onsite and offer full temperature compensation.We carry temperature calibrators suited for these types of applications. 
  • Throughout the lifespan of a wind turbine, its output will need to be constantly monitored, especially if it is lower than predicted. To measure the voltage, current and resistance of any wind turbine, calibration tools will need to be used. A multimeter is one such tool that can help you quantify the current and/or voltage your wind turbine is producing. From there, you can easily calculate power output. We carry multimeters as well as process, voltage and resistance testers.
