Dotx Wind Turbine Controller

The DotX Wind Turbine Controller (DWTC) is a computer program for on-board wind turbine computers. This computer program continuously determines the pitch or blade angles (drawing, nr 3), generator torque (nr 5) and yaw angle (nr 2). It allows to maximize power output and minimize design loads.

Projects (Wind Turbine Control projects)

 

Below is a list of our windturbine customers.

EWT is a global designer and producer of utility standard high performance gearless wind turbines of 250kW, 500kW to 1MW. DotX has been involved in the development of new EWT wind turbine types since 2014. EWT has acquired the source code of the DotX Wind Turbine Controller.
2-B Energy has introduced an innovative offshore wind power plant concept aimed at a significant lower Cost of Energy than competitors, and intends to commericialise this concept worldwide. Some of the differences with conventional wind turbines are: it is two bladed, it is downwind (the blades are downstream of the tower), it has a lattice tower, it has a unique yaw system. DotX has supplied 2-B energy with the DotX Wind Turbine Controller (see Products) and has helped to develop the 2B6 demonstrator (6MW)which is up and running in Eemshaven, the Netherlands, see image.
ECN develops new technology and conducts pioneering research in various ways into innovative solutions to facilitate the transition to sustainable energy management. DotX has assisted ECN in the research project SUSCON (=Sustained Control). This project focussed on developing new control concepts for Individual Pitch Control (IPC), handling Extreme Events (wind gusts), improved modelling by identification, improving fault detection methods and improving shutdown control.
 
 
Nordex is a wind turbine manufacturer based in Germany. DotX has assisted Nordex in research & development.
