Wind turbine gearbox failures have plagued the wind industry for many years and only now do their designers think they know why the gearboxes only survive three to seven years before a replacement. Research has been focusing on oil contamination and sudden torque reversals as solutions. In this webinar, experts from Parker Hannifin and PT Tech discuss recent thinking that goes into modern oil particle counters and the value of limiting torque.
Watch this webinar to learn:
- The latest research in why gearboxes fail prematurely. See results of actual field testing and monitoring.
- The damaging effects of reverse shockloads in wind turbine drive trains and how to effectively control them for gearbox longevity.
