With Nordex OSTM SCADA EDGE the Nordex Group brings the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) to the wind farm
Hamburg (renewablepress) - The management and visualisation software (SCADA) is a key component of wind turbine generators. The system controls and manages the wind turbines and the wind farm in order to ensure a maximum yield. With Nordex OSTM SCADA EDGE the Nordex Group now offers the next generation of their operations control system on the basis of a virtual, hardware-independent automatic solution. Nordex OSTM SCADA EDGE is based on an IIoT (Industrial Internet of Things) platform jointly developed with Software AG and its Cumulocity IoT solution.
In order to keep the cost of energy as low as possible wind farms have to be operated at the best possible performance and availability levels. This can be achieved when each individual turbine is constantly adjusted by the SCADA system for interaction with other turbines in the wind farm, the ongoing wind data processed in real time, as well as the local grid conditions. These standard conditions are fulfilled by the current proven Nordex Control 2 SCADA system. In addition to this, the new Nordex OSTM SCADA EDGE offers the possibility of accessing and displaying more data as well as including other components of the wind farm - such as the substation or battery storage. As this is a virtual solution, the new SCADA system can also be applied to other wind farm components to be added later. It is fully hardware-independent and thus future-proof as it also operates on future generations of server hardware.
With the standard IIoT platform data and processes data and processes can be used both centrally and decentral. As an "on-premise solution“, Nordex OS™ Control Center is used to collect all data worldwide centrally in Hamburg, Germany.
For example, the Nordex OSTM Control Center can automatically check the parameters of each individual turbine and each connected wind farm component for plausibility.
Optional multiply redundant systems ensure that the Nordex Group has an availability of 99.9% for the Nordex OS™ SCADA EDGE. The system stores data for up to five years. Parallel servers ensure interruption-free operation without data loss in the event of the outage of a complete server unit.
The Nordex Group offers the Nordex OSTM SCADA EDGE for its turbines of the Delta and Delta4000 series and it can also be used for older turbine generations. The Nordex Group will equip the first wind farms with Nordex OSTM SCADA EDGE in 2020.
