With many years experience designing real time control systems and hardware for offshore wave power converters, we understand the challenges and requirements for renewable devices. Utilising a combination of off the shelf components and custom electronics, we can create a cost effective and scalable control system.
Renewable devices often have to contain multiple systems for controlling the device itself as well as power generation and safety systems. Using a single control system allows for data acquired from all of these components to be logged and analysed for both ongoing development and fault finding.
We can also develop scale control and data acquisition systems for early stage development and testing as well as hardware test and simulation test benches for lab based development. This allows hardware and software to be fully tested before deployment.
