WO/2017/005266 METHOD FOR PREDICTING AND CONTROLLING LOADS ON A WIND TURBINE AND A WIND TURBINE THEREOF||WO||12.01.2017|
||PCT/DK2016/050232||ENVISION ENERGY (DENMARK) APS||FRYDENDAL, Ib|
The present invention relates to a control method and a wind turbine configured to determine a load signal of at least one component of the wind turbine, and to calculate a damage rate based on this load signal. The control method calculates and monitors the damage rate in real-time, wherein the damage rate is normalised by using a first function defining a first transition phase. A second function is afterwards applied to the normalised damage rate which defines a second transition phase. These transition phases allows for a smooth transition between different operating modes of the wind turbine. The control method may further change the power output of the wind turbine relative to the nominal power output when the output signal of the second function is determined to be stable over at least one time period.

WO/2017/005268 TURBIDITY SENSOR BASED ON ULTRASOUND MEASUREMENTS||WO||12.01.2017|
||PCT/DK2016/050235||KAMSTRUP A/S||NIELSEN, Søren Tønnes|
A turbidity measurement device for measuring turbidity of a fluid flowing in a flow tube. A first transducer transmits ultrasonic signals through the fluid in the turbidity measurement section so as to provide a first ultrasonic standing wave between the first and second section ends. A receiver transducer receives the ultrasonic scattered response from particles in the fluid flowing through the turbidity measurement section. A control circuit operates the transducers and generates a signal indicative of the turbidity of the fluid in response to signals received from the receiver transducer. Preferably, the device may comprise a second transducer for generating a second ultrasonic standing wave with the same frequency, and further the two transducers may be used to generate a measure of flow rate by means of known ultrasonic techniques. This flow rate may be used in the calculation of a measure of turbidity. Both turbidity facilities and flow rate facilities may be integrated in a consumption meter, such as a heat meter or a water meter.
