Modern wind turbines are complex, high-tech mechatronic systems in which electrical engineering, mechanics and information management are closely synchronised. Understanding the interaction and system optimisation of turbines, gear mechanisms, generators, power electronics and signal electronics places high demands on job skills, research and development.
The interdisciplinary technology service provider BCM has been successfully completing national and European collaborative projects with industry in all these areas together with its member institutes in the electrical engineering and production engineering departments at the University of Bremen and the mechanical engineering department at the Bremen University of Applied Sciences for many years.
As a research facility BCM has access to a wide range of expertise and as an external and independent partner it can support businesses effectively in developing their potential for technical innovation. For the wind energy industry, mechatronics is a strategic key for growth and competitiveness! Other areas of activity include power electronics, control engineering and equipment condition monitoring.
