Work Package 2: Drive Train with Gearbox

Work Package Leader


Partners involved in the Work Package as Task leaders and additional partners

Task 2.1 (KU Leuven) - Simulation and experimental validation of drive train loads for offshore specific conditions
Task 2.2 (LMS) - Strategy for model updating based on experimental data from drive train test facility

The use of the multi-body modelling technology is particularly suited for the drive train with gearbox analysis covered by WP2. A complete wind turbine drive train assembly will be modelled and the model will be used to study the wind interaction (from WP1, and 5) and the control laws. An efficient and feasible measurement plan and campaign for experimental structural load identification of a wind turbine gearbox will be set up. To facilitate these measurements in an efficient manner cooperation with our industrial partner HANSEN Transmissions International is foreseen.

One of the strategic objectives of the industrial initiative of the SET Plan on wind energy is to reduce cost of energy by...
