Moog Inc., a designer, manufacturer and integrator of precision-control components and systems for the wind energy industry, has introduced its new wind turbine remote terminal software.

The software is designed to give wind farm operators and manufacturers greater control and understanding of the operation of pitch systems, which are critical to the efficiency and safety of wind turbines.

The remote terminal software can be accessed by both Moog engineers and the customer's service personnel using a single graphical user interface. The software offers users the ability to remotely diagnose potential operational issues in the pitch system and take corrective actions, either by parameter editing or through preventive-maintenance actions, the company explains.

The status view of the pitch-control system will be displayed alongside important control information, and the parameter editor offers a full data set and protected access to key parameters in the pitch system control software, Moog says, adding that the integrated condition-monitoring functions provide early diagnoses of potential issues in order to reduce turbine downtime.

The tool is also intended to help operators plan on-site service work, allowing for targeted maintenance. Software updates can also be applied remotely to ensure that customers can take advantage of continuous improvements in the tool.
