Wind Turbine Fault Detection and Diagnostics Case Studies – Intermediate Shaft Bearing Looseness Sponsored by Brüel & Kjær Vibro
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM ET
Brüel & Kjær Vibro started monitoring wind turbines over 10 years ago and is currently monitoring 7000 worldwide. As most of our customers use our complete surveillance and diagnostic service for condition monitoring of their parks, this has enabled us to see a wide range of machine component faults and at the same time allow us to refine our monitoring techniques accordingly. We would like to share this expertise with Owners & Operators, service providers and OEM alike, in order to help the industry reduce the life cycle costs of their wind turbines and optimize machine availability.
This webinar focuses on the intermediate shaft (IMS) bearings of the gearbox. Case study 1 looks at the Rotor End bearing where movement between outer race and housing creates wear and excessive clearance. If this is not corrected in time it could lead to gear teeth damage and/or replacement of the entire gearbox. Case 2 looks at a Non Rotor End (Generator Side) bearing fault detection and diagnosis. This bearing is normally a single row tapered roller bearing paired face to face with another bearing, requiring special measurement techniques.
