A major update to Breeze for wind power owners and operators just arrived and there are four new features in particular that you should know about as they are sure to save time and make wind farm management easier.
Breeze's brand new API (Application Programming Interface) allows third party applications to fetch real time and historical data for any turbine monitored in Breeze - including power output, wind speed, turbine status, maintenance and more.
During the operational phase of a wind farm a great deal of things happen both inside and around the wind turbines that affect the performance and availability. All wind turbines are equipped with sensors that continuously feed the wind farm SCADA system with data.
Wind power turbines convert wind into energy. In order to know how well and effective that conversion is, it is of utmost importance to really understand wind conditions at the site not only during project development but also during the operational phase of the turbines.
During 2013 the team behind Breeze has been hard at work with adapting Breeze to be a useful tool for not only developers performing wind measurement campaigns but also for owners and operators of operating wind farms. The product is now ready and commercially available. It is called Breeze Production.
