Transcription for wind turbine components, such as blades, will make predictions easier to make, say experts from a wind turbine company.
The company Transcription Software Technologies says the software, which has already been used in wind turbine factories, will soon make predictions on the strength of wind turbine blades.
The software will also be used to predict wind speeds.
The company has been working on the technology for more than a decade and the latest announcement comes after a patent was filed in August, which was then published on its website.
The patent describes a software that can be used for measuring the electrical characteristics of wind turbines and the way they are affected by wind speeds and currents.
The patent covers a system that would record the characteristics of each blade in a windmill and compare the results with an input to determine whether the blade is “stable”.
The windmill would then use this information to determine wind speeds for the future.
“We are excited to announce Transcription as a new provider of the most accurate wind turbine prediction software for the home and commercial,” said Jürgen Dehn, the company’s CEO.
He said that the software will be available for use by developers as early as next year.
Dehn said the company was developing the software as a part of a larger strategy that will be focused on cloud computing, virtualization, and other emerging technologies.
Transcription Software has already released software for commercial wind turbine users.
It also has an interest in other aspects of renewable energy, including biofuels and hydropower.
