Emerson has formed an alliance with Vayu, a Ystrategies Corp company, to provide automation technology solutions for wind farm energy optimisation in the Americas, Caribbean and Europe.
The three-year collaboration combines the power applications and networking capabilities of Emerson’s Ovation automation platform with Vayu’s cloud-computing wind energy optimisation technology. Emerson and Vayu’s solution leverages key data and machine learning to enable turbines to work cooperatively, adjusting the side-to-side movement of each turbine based on wind speed, wind direction and other parameters to extract the optimum energy from wind. Emerson’s Ovation compact controller will communicate data from each turbine’s wind sensor to the Vayu system every 1-2 seconds. This near-real-time data enables a more accurate calculation of the optimum setting for each turbine.
