TCM® — Turbine Condition Monitoring

Prevent wind turbine failures with a powerful condition monitoring solution

Avoid turbine failures and increase power production

Preventing wind turbine failures and understanding the health state of core wind turbine parts are essential commercial drivers when managing a wind farm.

With 25+ years of experience, TCM® is a state-of-the-art and secure condition monitoring solution that identifies emerging faults and damages in core wind turbine components.

TCM® empowers owners and operators to predict turbine health and improve operational decisions that help reduce turbine downtime and increase power production – providing site managers and maintenance personnel peace of mind. 

Deployment flexibility 

We understand that every business has different IT infrastructure needs and views on operational costs, security, control and scalability. To meet your IT requirements, we offer cloud or on-premise deployment options – allowing you to determine the deployment that works best for your business. 

One platform for everything

Improve cooperation and streamline your operations and maintenance strategy with single access to fleet management and vibration analysis data. 

Prepared for big data

Integrate data with SCADA systems and ERP systems and work with your own big data projects.

Keep your data secure

Whether it is a cloud solution or integrated into your network, we comply with your security demands.

The complete TCM® solution

Designed and developed specifically for wind turbines

Our high-quality vibration sensors are designed to measure every vibration with high precision, whether vibrations occur in the main bearing, gearbox and generator or undesired tower sway, rotor imbalance or tail wag. With their integrated fast-shock recovery, you will never miss a vibration signal.

Monitor over 50% of failing wind turbine parts

The TCM® solution ensures your wind turbines’ uptime by detecting early failures of cost-intensive parts in each wind turbine, including the drive train, gearbox, generator, main bearing and much more.

TCM® monitors over 50% of failing wind turbine parts, reducing the annual downtime for wind turbines. By receiving condition-based information for each wind turbine part, you can plan repairs and maintenance and drive down the cost of energy.

Condition monitoring equipment built for all weather conditions

Our equipment and hardware enable you to drive an effective condition-based maintenance strategy. Designed specifically for the wind industry, the equipment included in your TCM® solution consists of high-quality vibration sensors (IEPE standards).

Our advanced sensors endure the harsh weather conditions in offshore environments and the rough land surfaces with changing heat capacity in onshore environments. Most importantly, our equipment is built to last.

With our fast-shock recovery feature, you will never miss a vibration signal.

Powerful diagnostics tool, supporting your O&M workflow

A core feature of TCM® is its ability to diagnose and predict the maintenance of core wind turbine components. There are no limits to how you can process the vibration data from your wind turbine fleet.

Our diagnostics tool provides you with a powerful analysis engine ideal for data mining, machine-modelling, and much more, supporting the accuracy of your monitoring and maintenance workflows.

Key diagnostic features

Diagnostic

Provides a data-mining and visualization platform for collected and stored vibration data.

Modeller

Used for modelling the drivetrain and adding the drive train’s kinematic data to TCM®.

Point

Fault signatures in the plots let you easily identify faults based on the kinematics of the drivetrain.

Configuration

A tool to create measurement configurations, data processing, define binning, storing criteria and alarm criteria.
