Title: DETERMINING AN ORIENTATION OF A ROTOR PLANE OF A WIND TURBINE
Abstract:
A method is proposed for determining an orientation of a rotor plane of a wind turbine, comprising the following steps : - determining direction information (201, 301, 401) of a moving part (131) of a wind turbine on basis of at least one signal (150) of a positioning system received at the moving part (131), - determining the orientation (235, 245,335, 435) of the rotor plane on basis of the determined direction information (201, 301, 401). Further, a wind turbine and a device as well as a computer program product and a computer readable medium are suggested for performing said method.
