Fatigue load monitoring with standard wind turbine signals

Nicolai Cosack
The loading of wind turbines is in general not monitored and measurements are only performed for the validation of prototypes. A shift towards increased use of load monitoring devices for the forthcoming generation of large multi-megawatt turbines is obvious, as relative costs for measurement devices go down and the benefit from feeding load signals into the turbine control increases. However, it is hard to imagine that this will be the case for turbines with rated...
