New Advances in Wind-Turbine Components
A wind turbine is only as good as the sum of its parts. However, choosing components that operate with minimal maintenance or repair needs is a challenge at wind farms. Almost without exception, turbines operate under extreme conditions that put these powerful machines under considerable stress and wear.
How to extend slip-ring life in wind turbines
A healthy wind turbine is a productive turbine, one that can improve a wind owner's ROI. However, even the smallest components can impact a turbine's overall efficiency if damaged or overworked. Proper maintenance and design of turbine components are vital to keeping a wind farm running reliably, and avoiding unscheduled repairs or costly replacements.
Small Component, Big Reliability
Fiber optic rotary joints are being considered more and more as a replacement for conventional precious metal contacts in wind turbines.
