Condition Monitoring for
Energy and Industry

Wind Power Ice Detection and Condition Monitoring

Ice Detection

Ice on wind turbine blades will change the sound profile of the turbine. Online alarms are preset to detect this condition and alarms to set when the icing occurs. Installation of the monitoring unit does not need anything on blades or hub and can be done in few hours for individual turbine.  

Condition Monitoring

Wind turbine has small but distictive sound that can be detected when monitored from close proximity. This sound identifies us typical for each turbine. AuresSound specialists will determine this typical soundscape and set alarms for specific changes on this. 

 
What can be detected
Other benefits of online monitoring
Installation and detection of abnormal sounds

Monitoring sites of energy production and process industry are usually in the roof and around of the site. Sound is monitored 24/7 and normal operational sound is defined. Sounds that differentiate from normal trigger an alarm that can be listened and analysed. Distinct background sounds e.g. airplanes, weather related sounds are separated during start-up by AuresSound specialists.  

All abnormal sounds can be detected. These sound can be abnormal steam releases, broken fans, broken bearings, broken pumps etc. Technicians can identify the abnormal sound when they listen to it. 

Online monitoring will give you valid information 24/7 on your noise emissions and background noise emissions. With online monitoring you can easily separate background noise from actual operational noise. Sound monitoring can also detect work conducted on abnormal times. 

 
 

Sound Based Condition Monitoring
How Does It Operate?

INSTALLATION OF MONITORING
POINTS

Number of monitoring points is chosen based on the planned target condition monitoring need.Installation takes only few days with testing. AuresSound condition monitoring points can operate also wirelessly.

ONLINE DATA ACCESS

After installation online data access is established. Online user interface consists quick overview and more detailed data reviewing tools. 

ALARM
SETTING

During the first phase of condition monitoring AuresSound specialists will review the data and setup alarms based on monitoring needs.

ACTIONS ON
ALARMS

When alarm is recorded message is sent to responsible persons with information on what kind of alarm was triggered. With online access to data actions can be chosen based on severity of the alarm.
