Webinar: ecoCMS – Affordable and Effective CMS

This webinar was originally broadcast on Thursday, October 20, 2016.       Deploying condition monitoring systems (CMS) for wind turbines does not need to be expensive or complicated. Romax InSight’s new condition monitoring system, ecoCMS, has overcome this barrier and is enabling wind farm owners and operators to minimize costs and improve operations and

Webinar: Engineering Solutions To Wind Turbine Electronic Failures

This webinar was recorded on October 11, 2016.   Did you realize that 50% of wind turbine repairs are connected to electronic component failures? The emphasis on improving uptime in the wind industry has been a major topic of discussion at fleet engineering meetings, workshops, AWEA conferences, as well as board room and investor meetings. As

Webinar: Weathering and Performance of Leading Edge Protection

Watch on demand. Leading Edge Erosion is a severe problem in the wind market. Many factors affect the performance of an effective leading edge protection. In this webinar you will learn some of the key weathering factors that affect the performance of Leading Edge Protection. You will also get an overview of how to evaluate

Webinar: Holistic Performance Monitoring of Wind Farms – Comparable performance measurement on any turbine, in any wind farm, at any time

Watch on demand. Determining the true performance of each wind farm turbine is extremely difficult if not impossible. Nowadays performance measurements in wind farms are limited to single turbines with free wind sectors, defined flat areas and using dedicated met masts. Although lidars have the potential to replace met masts they are limited to the

Webinar: Making short lived pitch bearings work longer

This webinar was held on Thursday, July 14, 2016. Watch on demand. Pitch bearings spend long periods in a fixed position. When they do move, the motions are small in amplitude and low in speed. These conditions present challenges in developing lubricant films in the bearing, which can result in premature failure. Other issues include
