Vibration testing of wind turbine components
Reliability and low maintenance are key factors governing the profitability of wind turbines, as downtime and repair are prohibitively costly. Since component parts like nacelle electronics are subjected to substantial vibration, fatigue and failure can easily result.
Vibration testing on turbine components is vital to identify flaws early and minimise the risk of component failure, such as in durability and fatigue testing. By progressively applying severe vibration stresses to a component in a short period, you can effectively prevent potential problems before design implementation and turbine deployment.Products:
Using a Brüel & Kjær vibration test system gives the peace of mind that products have been tested rigorously and consistently. Brüel & Kjær’s LDS shaker range allows you to check the integrity of components from small electrical parts to payloads of up to 5000kg.
