Internal root zone damage detection

The in-blade system uses sound emission to detect root zone structural damage. Sound from wind turbine blades is received by the microphone and processed through different algorithms to identify noise from damage.

Depending on the sound generated by the respective rotor blade, the in-blade sensor “hears” whether there is rotor blade damage or not. You can conveniently view the data via the dashboard or reports.

Simple, independent and smart detection of structural damage

The in-blade sensor is self-contained, self-powered via a kinetic power supply and self-communicating. It communicates independently with the cloud without no connection to wind turbine systems.

It has a robust housing and can be easily installed on the blade access panel, or within the blade depending on preference. As soon as the sensor acoustically detects damage, you can see this in the dashboard by changing the damage levels.
With one monitor installed per blade, operators can know which blade has changed damaged levels via our cloud.

Types of damage detected

These types of damages are detected by our in-blade sensor system

Transverse crack

A transverse crack often occurs in the trailing edge region of the blade when subjected to excessive edgewise fatigue load.

Internal delimination

Delamination may reduce the critical buckling load of the blade and reduce the overall stiffness and strength of the blade.
