The OCS is a “next generation” wind turbine control system for utility-scale wind turbines. From its position on top of the nacelle, the OCS simultaneously measures wind speed and direction in the free-stream inflow ahead of the turbine and uses this information to optimize wind turbine performance, increasing energy output and reducing damaging stress loads.
