Sakor Technologies, a provider of instrumentation products for dynamometer testing, says its dynamometer system is available for testing wind power applications.

Sakor says its Accudyne AC Dynamometer testing system can test turbines and their associated blade pitch control motors, generators, wind-sensing devices and motors, and transmissions. The system can also be used for testing water coolant pumps and other ancillary components, according to the company.

In addition to independent component testing, the system can also be used to test groups of components simultaneously to see how they work together. For those conducting research and development, the product can be used to simulate the generator during early design stages, before a physical generator or gearbox unit exists, notes Sakor.
