Vestas has signed an agreement with Mita-Teknik to market controller upgrades for wind turbines in North America, including the V47 turbine.
Wind Turbine Retrofit
Introducing the WP3500 controller Retrofit that offers a safe and effective way of upgrading the Vestas V47-660 kW control platform to modern standards.
Complete SCADA Solution
Our SCADA solutions provide you with the features and flexibility you need to gain greater control of your turbines, and cover your every need when it comes to monitoring, controlling and servicing.
Over the last three decades, thousands of wind turbines of all sizes have been installed worldwide. The majority of the wind turbines have been good investments, but as with many other technologies, components for repairs and maintenance are decreasing rapidly. The turbines are often in good mechanical shape but out of warranty from the OEM. These factors in combination with unplanned service costs and new demands have until now made it more feasible to stop the turbines, repower the site with new larger turbines or simply remove them.
By retrofitting older turbines with improved control automation technologies there is now a secure, cost effective and simple way of extending older turbines’ productive life span and keeping them running on site or repowering them at more suitable locations. Our Retrofit Concept helps you upgrade the control and electrical systems in your wind turbine to new improved systems that are up to date with local and market requirements.
We Make Wind Competitive
Mita-Teknik has been in the business of control automation since 1969. Our track record is continuously proven, as more than 47,000 wind turbines equipped with our control systems, daily deliver optimal performance and unsurpassed reliability.
Our mission to Make Wind Competitive applies to everything we do, and every product and service in our portfolio is designed with the primary objective to optimize your production, improve your bottom line and make you more competitive. Mita-Teknik’s primary focus has always been aimed towards the OEMs of the wind industry and it still is today. We have successfully handled projects ranging from a few kW to large MW setups, on- and offshore. In addition to our OEM offerings, we also offer a cost-competitive Retrofit solution that satisfies the steady growing aftermarket segment.
Mita-Teknik offer everything in Control, Pitch, Condition Monitoring, SCADA, Optimization, Retrofit and Customer Partnering - all designed to provide our customers with high yield cost-optimized wind turbine operation and maintenance.
The Mita-Teknik Drive System (MDS) is a combined hardware and software pitch solution that precisely controls the angle position of each rotor blade as determined by the overall control system.
To optimize the wind turbine power curve and to apply minimum load to the structure, it is necessary to regulate the aerodynamic power. This is done by pitching the rotor blades so that the rotor speed is maintained at optimum and always kept below the maximum allowed rotor speed. The blades can be pitched at such an angle that the blades come to a full stop, which for larger wind turbines is often the only way to stop safely.
Maximum safety and efficiency is achieved with three independent systems, where each blade has a separate and independent MDS. The MDS continuously monitors the communication status, motor temperature, power supply, limit switches, motor brake status and a number of other parameters.
