PROcedures for TESTing and measuring wind energy systems
ID: 212825
Start date: 2008-03-01, End date: 2010-08-31
One of the major causes of failures of mechanical systems (e.g. drive trains, pitch systems, and yaw systems) in wind turbines is insufficient knowledge of the loads acting on these components. The objective of this pre-normative project is to set up a methodology that enable...
