Atmospheric icing causes production losses to wind turbines, poses a risk of ice throw and increases dynamic loading of wind turbine which might reduce the lifetime of turbine components. These effects are qualitatively widely known but not quantitatively. In order to estimate effects of icing to power production of a typical 3 MW wind turbine, a simulation based study was made. Three rime ice cases were selected with the meteorological conditions typical for Finnish climate. Conditions were… CONTINUE READING
