The majority of wind turbine failure is caused by faults in the drivetrain. Vibration-based condition monitoring is widely used for assessing wind turbine drivetrain components, however, the cost of such systems can be high. In response to this, a novel new technique, based on airborne sound generated by the rotating machinery and using microphone sensors, is being developed which can reduce the cost of condition-based maintenance for wind turbines.
Join our webinar to find out how failures on the drivetrain can be detected using the airborne emissions detected by a microphone installed in the nacelle. In addition, attendees will learn how faults can be localised, providing wind farm operators with vital information they can incorporate into their maintenance planning and scheduling.
