Collection System Cable Mitigation
May 1, 2021
Wind turbines get credit for generating clean energy, but wind power would never make it to the grid for widespread consumption if it weren’t for a healthy, functioning collection system.
When your collection system is operating at peak performance, it is business as usual. This system is effectively working to minimize losses and voltage drops.
But failures can occur at any time, and anywhere along the chain. The cause is typically tied to aging assets, extreme weather conditions, poor design or installation error. And the effects can be crippling. Having just part of your facility offline could result in significant downtime and revenue loss.
Don’t let faulty cables affect your wind facility’s power-generating capacity.
