FESTO PLC Wind Turbine Training System

PLC Industrial Application (8075-40)

The Wind Turbine Training System uses a PLC to monitor the speed and direction of the wind and control the position of the wind turbine nacelle.

  • System comprised of a Nacelle Simulator, Model 3297, and a Wind Generator, Model 3213
  • Small blower for generating air flow
  • Nacelle equipped with dc motor and mechanical clutch
  • Two limit switches with NO and NC contacts
  • Analog position sensor for determining wind direction (0-10 V)
  • Variable-frequency pulse-train signal for measuring wind speed (24 V dc)
  • Requires an external 24 V power supply
  • Accepts two 24 V dc control signals from the PLC for motor operation
  • Includes job sheets
