The Nordex N100/2500 kW is a 2.5 MW wind turbine specially configured for low and moderate wind conditions.
The prominent feature of the N100 is its 49 meter long rotor blades, resulting in a large rotor diameter of some 100 meters. At 7,823 square meters, this produces an increase of 23 percent in rotor sweep compared with the N90/2500 turbine, making the N100 particularly suitable for low wind conditions with average wind speeds 7.5 m/s.

The N100 marks a further development of the N80/N90 family. More than‚ 1000 N80/N90 turbines‚ have been produced since the year 2000‚ All enhancements to the N80/N90 turbines developed over the past seven years have been incorporated in the turbine design. Numerous new detail solutions ensure heightened availability and greater yield in non-coastal locations in particular.
Grid compatibility is based on the proven engineering model used in the N90/2500. The turbine will be certified in accordance with DIBt2 and IEC 3a. It is supplied in a 50 Hz version, with a 60 Hz version also available for the US market. The turbine is available on 100 meter steel tube towers.
The N100/2500 is controlled by Nordex Control 2 (NC2), a software/hardware system for managing the central wind power System components right up to wind farms or the power station networks of non-centralized energy producers. The software system continuously evaluates all operating and weather data measured and ensures yield-optimized operation of the system. To this end, Nordex programs each system with turbine and location-based parameters. The wind turbines are fitted with two devices (anemometer) to record wind data. The first one is used to manage the system and the second one monitors the first device. If one device fails, the other takes over.
Each system is linked to a remote monitoring system for controlling the components (hardware and software). In this way, all data and signals are transmitted by ISDN and can be viewed using an Internet browser. This ensures data monitoring as well as active remote management (e.g. start-up, deactivation and wind tracking) for each turbine from the Nordex service center in Rostock. The remote monitoring office works around the clock and is automatically alerted in the event of any deviation in operating data from standard parameters. The system is backed by an emergency power supply. Together with the batteries fitted to the pitch system, the system is deactivated securely in the event of any loss of power.
In addition, the turbine can be fitted with a condition monitoring system to ensure proactive maintenance. This early warning system alerts the operator when a component needs to be replaced in the foreseeable future. In this way, it is possible to avoid an unscheduled shutdown.
