Therefore, the aim of the three-year project is to develop an intelligent condition monitoring system (CMS) and combine it with an advanced control strategy in order to protect the blade bearings on the one hand, and, at the same time, optimize the expected energy yield and service life of the wind turbine.

Fraunhofer IWES puts further bearing test rig into operation

The Fraunhofer Institute for Wind Energy Systems IWES has put the new BEAT1.1 (Bearing Endurance and Acceptance Test) facility into operation now.

As part of the iBAC (Intelligent Bearing Amplitude Control) research project, funded with €2.15 million by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi), Fraunhofer IWES is testing 100 small-scale rotor blade bearings together with the project partners ENERCON, Dataletics, and IMO. The test results will be employed to create a database that can be used to develop methods for advanced pitch control and a condition monitoring system for blade bearings assisted by artificial intelligence (AI). This should make it possible not only to achieve an optimal energy yield, but also to increase the system service life... ... More: Official Press Release Fraunhofer IWES
