Failure of the drivetrain components is currently listed among the most problematic failures during the operational lifetime of a wind turbine. Guaranteeing robust and reliable drivetrain designs is important to minimize the wind turbine downtime as well as to meet demand in both power quantity and quality. While aeroelastic codes are often used in the design of wind turbine controllers, the drivetrain model in such codes is limited to a few (mostly two) degrees of freedom, resulting in a… CONTINUE READING
