Energy conservation, emission reduction and New energy is the major tendency for future energy utilization. With the substantial from governments, renewable energy development has been booming in the world, and wind power development is especially rapid. Data shows that the global wind-power market will increase by 25% in the following 20-25 years and the wind power installed capacity will be up to 20-30million KW in the following 15 years. In China, Wind power capacity is expected to increase five fold over the next 10 years thanks to the government's clean energy drive. Companion with the booming of the renewable energy, especially the wind power, wind-power related equipments develop rapid, following the increase of needs in management system and remote monitoring system. To construct a reliable monitoring platform, the system integrator decides to adopt NORCO’s PPC to be part of the monitoring system for wind power generation.
This platform works as a monitoring system to check and monitor the functions and conditions of on-site equipments by collecting signal data and send all the signals to sever. The Master Control System will check and test the power grid parameters, wind regime, environmental temperature, generator operating temperature and hydraulic system pressure to optimize the monitoring system performance. At the same time, the system can also provide alarms if any failures to secure the reliable operation of wind power unit , so as to maximize the wind energy utilization and optimize FCEe. NORCO PPC-3211 is installed in the control cabinet to monitor the operation status with the functions of parameters/records inquiry and malfunction recording or other inquiry and statistic functions.
• Compact enclosure, easy operation
• Waterproof and anti-shock, able to operating in various harsh environments
• High stability and low failure rate
• Rich I/O to secure the data transmission
• Remote monitoring and intelligent control
NORCO PPC-3112 is designed specially for customers from the wind power market. This panel PC is based on Intel Pine view-M low-power EPIC motherboard EMB-4870, low-power but high performance. PPC-3112 is of pleasant enclosure with “ICEFIN” thermal design, noiseless and good cooling performance, supporting Type II CF card;1*VGA to realize synchro-dual display; 2*Gigabit Ethernet ports; 2* USB2.0 and 1*PS/2, compatible with wide range temperature from -30? to +75?, suitable to work under various harsh environments. The front panel utilizes 10.4" TFT LCD touch screen, with protection grade of IP65. Besides, the modular design realized the free combination of HMI and external I/O.
