Wind Component Testing and Validation

Testing Wind Turbines for Noise Emissions With NI LabVIEW

Carsten Thomsen
DELTA

"We chose the LabVIEW development environment because of its seamless integration with a wide range of NI data acquisition modules, its signal processing capabilities, and its ability to interface to a variety of digital ports from wind turbine control systems. In addition, the TDMS data format provides a robust, high-performance solution for storing virtually unlimited amounts of high-channel-count data."
