Webinar: The Case for Case Carburized Bearings in Wind Turbines

This webinar was originally broadcast on Wednesday, November 2, 2016. Join Rob Budny, well-known bearing and gear expert, and president of RBB Engineering, and Rick Brooks, manager of Wind Energy Aftermarket at Timken, as they discuss why case carburized bearings do matter for wind turbine applications. In this webinar you will learn about: Review a case study

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 maintenance

Webinar: Engineering Solutions To Wind Turbine Electronic Failures

This webinar was originally broadcast 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 a

Webinar: Weathering and Performance of Leading Edge Protection

    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 and

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

    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 same

Webinar: Making short lived pitch bearings work longer

    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 insufficient system stiffness and manufacturing quality defects. What can an

Webinar: Manage Lightning Risks with New Weather Intelligence

    Severe weather season is here — putting your team and operations at risk. Lightning in particular is a major threat. Thankfully, there are cutting-edge tools and proven lightning intelligence to help you manage your biggest challenges. Please join Schneider Electric’s product manager, Shylesh Muralidharan, to learn how today’s cost-effective, innovative technology can help

Webinar: Increasing uptime and lowering LCOE through strategic planning

The relationship between the OEM, supplier and operator has never been transparent in the wind industry. Operators have historically used suppliers recommended by the OEM or only purchased solely based on price, because the failure rates of the components and gearbox are not typically disclosed. Sentient knows those failure rates and has been aggregating the

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
