Wind Energy Tribology at IJTC 2010

Wind Energy Tribology

The use of wind turbines has grown exponentially in the last few years, with this growth has also come problems associated with tribology. This track will cover all these issue but will focus on micropitting of the bearing and gears.

This event helps participants expand international cooperation, understanding and promotion of the efforts and disciplines in the area of Wind Energy Tribology.

Two sessions will be provided

  • Mechanical System Reliability of Wind Turbine Gearboxes                                              The expense of main, pitch, and yaw bearing and gearbox failures have put the focus of reliability onto these mechanical systems. Although they are already more reliable than other electrical components in the turbine, the industry is continuing to push the suppliers for more reliability. To that end, this session is aimed at new research into the mechanical systems, with particular focus paid to micropitting of the bearings and gears.
  • Wind Turbine Lubrication
    This session discusses the new research into monitoring the condition of lubricating systems in wind turbines and maximizing their performance and reliability in the field.
