A CAN Bus Based System For Monitoring And Fault Diagnosis In Wind Turbine

SKU: A CAN Bus-Monitoring & Fault Diagnosis In Wind Turbine Categories: ,



This paper is a CAN based architecture designed for the purpose of monitoring and fault diagnosis of wind turbine. CAN is a Message based protocol designed specifically for Automotive, later Aerospace, Industrial automation and Medical equipment’s. CAN interface module is used to communicate the monitored parameters between the wind turbine and the control center. During the transmission of the data from one node to another node disturbance occurs. To avoid these disturbances we propose CAN protocol.

In this project we declare the system with ARM and CAN protocol to monitor and diagnose the problems in the wind turbine application. The project deals with the data transmission between two units in the exact time without any disturbance. The data transmission time is increased with the CAN protocol. ARM core1 runs with CAN and LPC2148 as wind turbine unit to which sensors are connected and ARM core2 as Fault diagnose and monitoring section. A discussion about weather condition (WC) monitoring and generation voltage (GV) display is also added in this design. Data acquisition node collects the sensor data through CAN protocol. The basic view of this technique is to reduce the possibility of fault diagnosis and increase the monitoring of wind turbine.
