do you put the brakes on or what ever to stop them from turning...when high wind is forecast ?cheating because it's 36m up at our wind turbine hub but we had 99 mph when the front came through. What's any one else's turbine recorded today as there will be much higher than that.
Salting wise here hasn’t been to bad, gates arnt sticky to touch, I’ve got average farm covers of over 3,000 kg/dm/ha after 32 days and need it in 7 days so I’m hoping it hasn’t all disappeared with salt, hopefully rain will wash it off and we don’t get to much sun for a few days!Had 49mph last night, probably stronger today but my anemometer packed up at 2 am.. Local stations have been reporting 50 mph plus gusts , with St Annes head station reporting a 70kt gust at noon today as the front swung through.. waves of 16 metres .. normal range last week was 3m...
I think salt application on the entire farm will be considerable..
Everything is automated. Shuts itself down in high wind gust and won't restart until sustained period of 'safe' wind is reached again. Also monitors effectiveness of braking and won't restart if low brake torque, takes too long to stop or anything else not quite right.do you put the brakes on or what ever to stop them from turning...when high wind is forecast ?
