Wind Turbine Test Station, Kayathar
salient features of the Test Station are as follows: Station are as follows: Station are as follows: Station are as follows:
Test Station has currently two test beds with
grid connection to test wind turbines up to
1250kW and 400kW capacities. The number of test
beds can be enhanced and higher capacity wind turbines can
be tested when offered.
Each bed with
its control room is equipped with sophisticated data acquisitions
systems having validated software and state of art architecture.
Currently two met masts are available in front of each
measurements required by the customer.
