Scanivalve has many solutions to meet the unique demands put on wind turbine test equipment, each ensuring reliable output of quality pressure data.
In addition to offering instrumentation for wind turbine testing, Scanivalve has been intimately involved in several wind turbine development projects. This experience allows us to provide a very high level of support and customization to our wind turbine customers. Scanivalve’s instrumentation has been used in many
full scale wind turbine tests to validate and correct the CFD modeling used in the initial development of the turbine.
Scanivalve instrumentation can also be used in monitor and control systems of wind turbines for tasks like wind direction monitoring and blade angle control.
