Low carbon sensing and control
As the market for renewable energy grows, attention is turning to improving performance by innovation in sensing and control. This trend is driven by a number of factors, such as increasing segmentation of markets providing opportunities to fine tune product for each application and a slowing of competitive advantage from innovation in core technologies such as turbines or solar cells.
These factors mean that the supporting elements in renewable generation installations – the sensors, drivetrain, power electronics and balance of system – are receiving increasing interest, with specific challenges for different sectors: in wind, for example, improvements in condition sensing and power control are fertile ground for efficiency gain and cost reduction, while in solar, attention is turning to balance of system architectures, tracking and optimising systems and inverter designs.
