Monitoring turbines on the web

For the first time, a wind project can be monitored by the public almost in real time on the Internet. Performance data on a two Tacke 600 kW turbines in Wisconsin, part of the Utility Turbine Verification Project (TVP), is available to the public on a web page at 15 minute intervals. The low wind speed project will soon be joined on the Internet by all other TVP projects, says Chuck McGowin of the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI). Each will have its own web page displaying performance data. EPRI and the US Department of Energy operate the TVP program. The project, in farmland near the town of Glenmore, was built under the program by four Wisconsin utilities, which operate the web page. Although the utilities have used the same system, DENet, at specific customer and industrial sites, this is the first time it has been used to make data public.
