Wireless solutions on Norther OHVS by nCentric
nCentric were recently requested to provide wireless access to the Norther OHVS. One of the reasons for doing this was that, while the OHVS was not connected to the grid but installed in the wind farm, was to have access to certain parameters coming from this OHVS towards onshore. These parameters can come from the SCADA systems, giving technical information about the OHVS or certain alarms, in case they would occur. These signals are then connected to the nCentric nodes, which themselves are wirelessly connected to the nCentric’s 5G LTE and Mesh network offshore. This principle makes it possible to monitor the information onshore. The nCentric’s solution combines multiple frequencies giving the Norther OHVS a fully redundant solution. In the event one system fails due to loss of line of sight, the other system will take over in a seamless manner. Practically the Norther OHVS will be online and monitored through the nCentric solution even though it is not yet connected to the grid.
