The Powertrain Research Hub (PTRH) is a five-year research partnership between the ORE Catapult, the University of Sheffield and the University of Warwick that aims to address key offshore wind industry challenges in powertrain development and design. Our Research Hubs aim to build a stronger, complementary offering of academic research, innovation, demonstration and representative testing to the offshore renewables sector. The Powertrain Research Hub’s key objectives are:
• Reliability improvement and advanced test methodologies
• Advanced health condition monitoring and prognostic technologies
• Development of next-generation powertrain components for larger turbines.
The aim of this seminar is to present the Wind turbine bearing research projects within the research hub underway so far. Which encompasses field measurement techniques and monitoring bearing loading through to understanding failure mechanisms.Register here
