Webinar: Increase your AEP with Wind Vortex Generators

Free, informative webinar with EDF Renewable Services and 3M – Watch On Demand   Due to shape and operation limitations, the blades of large pitch-regulated wind turbines often have suboptimal aerodynamic properties at the root. This frequently leads to undesired airflow separation – known as aerodynamic stall – and can have a significant impact on

Webinar: Trends, strategies, and technologies for reducing wind turbine downtime

      Improving turbine reliability and uptime is critical to reducing a wind farm operator’s Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) and remaining competitive in today’s renewable market. While in the past, much of an operator’s focus has been on improving the design and operation of gearbox assemblies in order to reduce downtime, there is

On Demand Webinar: Power Performance Measurements: Cheaper Faster Better

This webinar will provide a vision of power curve testing under the new IEC standard.  The use of lidar and other remote sensing technologies is expected to revolutionize power curve testing, eliminating the need for expensive permanent met towers for power curve testing. Since many turbines have failed to meet expected power performance levels, the

Webinar: Effective Ways to Prevent Wind Blade Erosion

Maximizing efficiency of wind turbines is a vital consideration for operators, and managing erosion is a vital method to achieve this. Studies have consistently shown that erosion can lead to a loss in annual energy production (AEP) of up to 20% on severe cases. This figure is hard to ignore, and highlights the ROI benefits
