 Abstract
This paper presents a method for early fire detection and fire position determination inside the nacelle of wind turbine generator system. The rising temperature and obscuration rates inside the nacelle were used as parameters for fire detection, which can minimize the possibility of a fire detection malfunction because these rising rates do not depend on the absolute values of temperature and obscuration. The fire position was determined using the time difference among various sensor positions for fire detection. The performance of the method was tasted using sets of experiments in a nacelle simulator.
