TCM® Enterprise Server

Handling thousands of turbines on a global network

TCM® Enterprise Server is a platform for large-scale TCM® installations capable of monitoring thousands of turbines. Collecting data and information in a centralized server provides a better overview of turbine sites, and makes it easier to pull out the needed data. With the TCM® Enterprise solution, you can configure and monitor thousands of wind turbines equipped with the TCM® solution integrated with your SCADA system.

 


What can you do with the TCM® Enterprise?

With the TCM® Enterprise solution, you can configure and monitor thousands of wind turbines equipped with the TCM® solution integrated with your SCADA system.

Configuration

Wind turbines of the same model are assigned the same configuration, so you only have to maintain one configuration for each turbine model. We call it template-based configuration.  These configurations are adaptable and thus able to inherit properties from other configurations.

Monitoring

You can use the TCM® Enterprise web interface or you can have alarms and status information sent to your SCADA system. You can use the web interface to manage your assets and to build up your own knowledge and historical database on root causes for faults and the maintenance of the wind turbines.

Big Data

Integrating Big Data with the TCM® RESTful interface. TCM® RESTful interfacea is a unique solution for seamless integration of TCM® services on your network, allowing to efficiently integrate the TCM® Enterprise server solution with other corporate
services and applications.

Data mining

When you want to investigate a symptom or find the root cause of a fault, you can use the TCM® Ocular suite. TCM® Ocular is our revolutionary diagnostic platform that handles large-scale TCM® installations comprised of thousands of turbines. TCM® Ocular basic is integrated into both TCM® Site Server and TCM® Enterprise Server at no additional cost.

Software updates

When a new TCM® software version is available, you can deploy it from the TCM® Enterprise to all wind turbines and TCM® Site Servers through the management interface.

User management

The TCM® Enterprise has a robust user management system controlling accessibility and visibility to all functions and measurements. A secure https interface can be exposed to external users. Control and administrate users through active directory or LDAB.

Security

The TCM® Jump Host is a software application useful for hardening security related to the TCM® infrastructure. It provides interfaces for secured communication between TCM® Enterprise Servers and TCM® Site Servers

Concurrency

More TCM® Enterprise servers can operate in parallel – ensuring that utilities, independent power providers, and turbine manufactures can monitor the same wind turbines. This is convenient for training and the overtaking of other turbine parks e.g. when the warranty period ends or service responsibility shifts.

Active monitoring

When replicating data to an Enterprise Server, you can have either an active or a passive role.  This allows multiple parties to view the data that is collected in the Site Server at the same time in their respective Enterprise Servers. As an active monitoring body, you can modify measurement configurations and set specified alarms.

Passive monitoring

As a passive user, you are able to monitor and categorize every event locally without interfering with the active monitoring body’s acknowledgement, but you cannot alter the configuration. Having a passive role allows you to build up your experience with alarm handling before the primary monitoring responsibility becomes yours.


Advantages:

  • Effective, centralized remote monitoring of all of your wind farm sites
  • Import data from third party systems
  • Efficient management of thousand of turbines
  • Alarm handling on a global scale
  • Secured data transfer: Handling of alarms even if the connection to the M-System is lost (requires connection to the wind turbine controller)
  • Direct software deployment from the TCM® Enterprise to all wind turbines and TCM® Site Servers through the management interface
  • Operate your Enterprise in parallel with utilities, independent power providers, service providers, or turbine manufacturers
  • Take on an active or a passive monitoring role allowing you to train up to the day that you will overtake monitoring
