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 leading Independent Service Provider (ISP) in the wind energy industry, PSI Repair Services uses innovative methods to determine the root cause of electronic component failures and then engineers custom solutions to resolve these problems.
In this informative webinar, PSI will provide real-world examples of how its powerful root cause analysis methods have helped resolve over 28,000 failed electronic components over the past five years, with the majority of the focus centered on pitch and yaw systems, in both up and down tower environments.
Attend this webinar to learn about:
- Causes of electronic component failure
- What root cause analysis is and how it works
- Corrective engineering practices
- Reliability and efficiency gains
