ConUp research project

Project title: ConUp – Secured procedures for manufacturer-independent parameterization and retrofitting of wind turbine control systems



The overarching aim of the joint project is to research a methodology for the safe application of hardware or software modifications to wind turbines to increase yield and / or extend service life. Up to now, such optimizations have hardly been possible regardless of the manufacturer, leaving potential unused. The joint project is developing an additive temporary or permanent system for monitoring critical operating parameters of wind turbines, which can be used on existing wind turbines.
