Conjoint Project for a test bench with Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and the University of Hanover - Getting blade bearings in shape for the turbines of the future
Blade bearings might not exactly be the most expensive components in a wind turbine, but damage to this fundamental part of the system can result in considerable downtimes and costs. By designing and testing blade bearings under realistic conditions reliable operation of future turbines shall be improved. In the HAPT research project (short for Highly Accelerated Pitch Bearing Test) researchers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology IWES Nordwest and the Institute of Machine Elements, Engineering Design and Tribology (IMKT) at Leibniz Universität Hannover (University of Hanover) work together with the IMO group to establish the foundations for the further development of blade bearings. ...[read more]
