"LabVIEW graphical system design allows us to design modular software that can be easily scaled to meet the growing requirements of rapidly evolving wind energy technology."
- Samir Bico - Siemens Wind Power A/S
To reduce maintenance costs and maximize energy production, wind turbine control design teams are developing advanced control systems that take advantage of today’s advanced embedded system platforms. NI LabVIEW software provides a high-level control design environment that creates a seamless transition to deployment hardware on reconfigurable field-programmable gate array (FPGA)-based embedded platforms such as NI CompactRIO. These programmable automation controller (PAC) systems combine traditional digital control capabilities with advanced high-speed analog I/O and unparalleled real-time signal processing performance.
