100 billion market approaching, FATRI powers new changes in smart wind power

From:    未知 Time:    2022-01-20
"The fierce competition in my country's wind turbine market will start. In the next three years, 2-3 domestic leading wind power equipment manufacturing enterprises will be formed." Li Ye, director of the Energy Conservation and Technology Equipment Department of the National Energy Administration, described my country's wind turbines in the next few years. The main trend of the market: integration, large-scale integration has been carried out among more than 70 wind turbine manufacturers at present! China will have the world's largest wind power market in the future, and a fierce competition has already begun. The grand opening of the Beijing International Wind Energy Conference on the 18th verified this conclusion.



The competition of wind turbine companies has entered a white-hot stage, but the operation and maintenance market has just ushered in a golden age. In 2020, the scale of the global wind power operation and maintenance market will increase significantly, exceeding US$17 billion. In the 14th Five-Year Plan, the installed capacity will reach 800 million kilowatts in 2030, and the operation and maintenance of wind power will become a big cake in the era of parity.

With the continuous development of 5G, artificial intelligence, and industrial Internet of Things technologies, intelligent operation and maintenance has gradually been put on the agenda. At the Beijing International Wind Energy Conference, dozens of companies demonstrated intelligent operation and maintenance solutions in the wind power field. As an intelligent core hardware supplier in the A-IoT era, the field of wind power is the key service target of FATRI. At this conference, FATRI also brought its own thoughts on the intelligent operation and maintenance of wind power and corresponding solutions.

This system integrates the current advanced technologies such as the Internet of Things, edge computing, big data, artificial intelligence, etc. The system is modularized, scalable, and configurable as the overall design idea. On this basis, it provides a variety of product forms to meet various needs. Scenario application. It has both data collection and edge computing functions in function, and has the advantages of modularization, easy expansion, and support for secondary development in application; Enables rapid on-site business deployment.
 
FATRI Smart Wind Power System Structure
 
FATRI's smart wind power system includes sensors at the perception layer, data acquisition and edge computing, operator network layer, cloud platform tool suite, and user terminal application layer. Among them, sensors, data acquisition and edge computing systems, and cloud platform tool suites are all independently designed and developed by FATRI, and have undergone rigorous performance testing and reliability verification.

End-to-end: multi-state sensing technology for wind power equipment. FATRI is a chip IDM company with a full range of capabilities in the design, manufacture, packaging and testing of non-silicon & silicon-based chips and sensors. For the wind power field, we have independently developed a variety of sensor products such as transmission chain vibration monitoring, tower slosh settlement monitoring, blade damage monitoring, lubricating oil quality monitoring, and bolt loosening monitoring.

Edge: Edge computing acquisition system, based on self-developed MCU chip and main control chip, FATRI data acquisition and edge computing system can realize multi-channel and multi-type analog and digital acquisition. The edge computing module adopts high-performance multi-core heterogeneous processors and embeds a variety of algorithm models in the wind power field at the same time, which can process complex algorithms in real time and perform fault diagnosis, truly realizing the "integration of measurement and control". The modular design makes the system easy to expand and maintain. Users only need a set of edge computing equipment, and by expanding the acquisition module, they can monitor the health status of fans such as CMS, lubricating oil quality, blade cracks, loose bolts, and tower tilt. This avoids repeated investment for wind power owners, greatly reduces later expansion costs, and improves the utilization of space inside the wind turbine. Users can also carry out secondary development of FATRI's data collection and edge computing systems according to their needs, so that the products can be more suitable for their own use scenarios and needs, and play a greater value.

Cloud platform: refers to the cloud platform tool suite independently developed by FATRI - Tas Cloud. Tas Cloud is the carrier of online smart monitoring of wind power, and the driving engine of the acquisition layer and aggregation layer. It can realize the visual management of wind farms, early warning of large components, fault diagnosis and analysis, maintenance work order issuance and tracking, expert knowledge base, intelligent Decision-making and other functional business applications, the platform has the characteristics of tooling and modularization, which ensures the scalability of the business and lowers the operating threshold. The code-free SaaS application development based on drag and drop helps users to quickly generate, debug, and launch industry applications, and finally complete The construction of IoT PaaS core middleware.

Monitoring Scope of FATRI Smart Wind Power System
 
1. Transmission chain condition monitoring system: It can monitor bearing faults, gear faults, rotor dynamic imbalance, misalignment, mechanical looseness, etc.

2. Blade condition monitoring system: including blade cracks and blade icing, etc.
3. Tower status monitoring system
4. Lubricating oil quality monitoring system
5. Bolt condition monitoring system
6. Video surveillance system
7. Fire safety monitoring system
8. Switch cabinet wireless temperature measurement system
 
The value of FATRI's smart wind power system
 
Through the vibration early warning system of condition monitoring, the early failure of key components can be warned, and the abnormal state of the equipment can be predicted in advance, so as to reduce the equipment failure rate and potential safety hazards.

Through the collection, analysis and calculation of fan operation data, the accumulation of expert knowledge base is realized, which provides data support for equipment operation and maintenance.

Focusing on fault prediction and remote diagnosis, based on big data, it develops in the direction of intelligence and digitization, and realizes intelligent and less human management of wind farms.

Realize data and resource sharing, effectively improve production management level, and reduce operation and maintenance costs.
