Instrumentation of wind turbine

Within the RFI Wise project MUSIWIND on wind turbine monitoring, our team member Xavier Chapeleau has installed high performance accelerometers from project partner Sercel on the tower of a wind turbine (owner: VALOREM, control, operation and maintenance: VALEMO) this June. We look forward to working with the data for long-term monitoring of the wind turbine! More information on the project here, and from the wind turbine operator
