Venn Design Solutions staff undertook a collaborative project with Lillie Systems to develop a cost-effective tower sway sensor for Orenda Energy’s 50kW Skye Wind turbine fleet.  Rather than using an expensive COTS solution, a lower cost Lillie Systems Intelligent Accelerometer/Tilt sensor with CANBUS and logic output was programmed with a Venn Design developed algorithm which was compact enough to compute real-time tower-top displacement, with a sub-second response time and 1mm resolution.  This level of performance was sufficient to permit immediate detection of fault conditions, and allow for shut-down before additional damage could take place.
