Wind energy

We are wind energy engineers

Applying Aerospace Best Practices to Wind Turbine Design

We offer sound competence and years of experience in the field of engineering. Since 1997 the Bishop GmbH has been successful in the aircraft sector. More than 200 highly specialized employees work for our company all over the world. We at Bishop GmbH are now applying aerospace best practices to the challenges of wind turbine design and manufacturing, supporting our customers to effectively address common challenges.

Wind Turbine Assessment

Applying Aerospace Best Practices to Wind Turbine Design

When developing new wind turbines, extensive measurements of the mechanical loads acting on the prototypes during operation are indispensable.
Noise emissions are an important limiting factor in the layout of a wind farm. Qualified noise predictions are therefore essential for the planning of a wind farm. Bishop GmbH provides value added consultancy for Noise and acoustical analysis of the wind farms or wind turbine as individual equipment.

GRID Connection

FEM Verification of wind Turbine Components.
Carries out measurements and evaluations to determine the electrical characteristics and grid compatibility of wind turbines, solar inverters and of other generation units/systems.

Depending on the size of project we will comply with the requirements of the Distribution Code, the Grid Code and G59/2. We will be liable for significant transmission underwriting until your project is generating.

Actual Project Experience

Wind Turbine Project Experrience
• G128 4.5MW class IIA
• G136 4.5MW class IIIB
• G10X
• Mitsubhishi

Turbine Capacity
• 2MW
• 3MW
• 5MW

Power stations need to comply with the ESQCR and G59/2 – a document giving guidance on ensuring project meets the minimum power quality and protection requirements to connect to the grid. This can include:

• loss of mains,
• rate of change of frequency (ROCOF),
• fault ride though,
• neutral voltage displacement (NVD),
• point of common coupling voltage fluctuation
  under Engineering Recommendation P28,
• voltage imbalance & Engineering Recommendation P29
• earthing,

• step voltage change,
• harmonic requirements G5/4-1,
• over current,
• earth fault,
• reverse power,
• voltage vector phase shift,
• under frequency and over frequency.
