EMCORE’s quartz MEMS QRS14 provides a highly miniaturized, rugged package solution for use in wind turbines where inertia measurement and control are essential to the effective operation of condition monitoring systems (CMS) and the resulting energy capture efficiency of the turbines themselves. These devices provide excellent vibration performance, are highly reliable with long-life characteristics and ideally suited for use in remote turbine locations. Detection of angular position and acceleration of turbine blades, including control of blade-pitch, are excellent examples how these sensors contribute.
