Industrial Panel PC for Wind power generation application

- Jul 29, 2020-

Background:
Wind power is the conversion of the kinetic energy of wind into electrical energy. Wind energy is a clean and pollution-free renewable energy source, and it is inexhaustible. For coastal islands, grassland pastoral areas, mountainous areas and plateaus that are lack of water, fuel and inconvenient transportation, it is very suitable and promising to use wind power according to local conditions. Wind power has been used by human for a long time, mainly through windmills to pump water and grind the surface. The use of wind power is very eco-friendly, and the wind energy is huge. In addition, offshore wind power is an important area for the development of renewable energy.

Someone has estimated that there are about 10 billion kilowatts of wind resources available for power generation on the earth, which is almost 10 times of the world's hydropower generation capacity. The energy obtained by burning coal every year in the world is only one-third of the energy provided by wind in a year. Therefore, all countries are now pay great attention to use wind power to generate electricity and develop new energy sources.

With the massive construction of wind farms and the improvement of technology information management level, wind power has increasingly become one of the important new energy sources in our daily lives. At the same time, the safety management and maintenance of wind power systems also urgently need to be upgraded and improved.

Application requirements:
Wind power generation facilities are generally installed in the wild outdoors and harsh environments with dust and high winds, and even marine environments. In such an environment, wind power generation projects have higher requirements for the performance and stability of the industrial computer. This is not only the actual efficiency of the equipment, but also the field environment is more complicated for daily maintenance. Therefore, customers need reliable and professional industrial computing system solutions.
In wind power generation applications, industrial computers are generally used for monitoring and control of wind turbines. It can monitor, control, and exchange information on field equipment to achieve data collection, equipment control, measurement, parameter correction, and various information early warning functions.

TAICENN solutions and products:
As a solution provider and manufacturer of industrial computers, industrial Panel PC and industrial monitor products, TAICENN has confirmed the actual application environment and hardware requirements after several discussions with integration customers of the project. Customer wind power generation includes inland and ocean power generation application scenarios.
We finally confirm to deliver customers with industrial panel PC solution and product TPC-DRM121C1. It is 12.1-inch HD 1024*768, industrial grade -20~+60 range LCD screen, high temperature 5-wires precision resistive touchscreen, low power consumption of quad-core J1900 processor, industrial grade 4GB memory and 64GB SSD storage, rich IO interfaces include: 2x ethernet ports, 4 USB, 1 COM port, 1 HDMI interface.
