A review of wind turbine main bearings: design, operation

liability of wind turbines and their subcomponents, an area which overall has received a lot of attention. The motivation for this current review is the observation that the wind industry has identified wind turbine main-bearing (WT) failures as being a critical issue in terms of increasing wind turbine (WT) reliability and availabil-ity.

Pitch bearing - Wikipedia

The pitch bearing, also named blade bearing, is a component of modern wind turbines which connect the rotor hub and the rotor blade. The bearing allows the required oscillation to control the loads and power of the wind turbine. The pitch system brings the blade to the desired position by adapting the aerodynamic angle of attack. The pitch system is also used for …

How to Build a Wind Turbine. : 8 Steps (with Pictures

I once took apart an office photo copy machine. It contained several long stainless steel shafts with ball bearings on each end. For a free copy machine, it had about 75 pounds of good "stuff." If you are building a relatively small wind turbine, that might be a good place to look for parts. One or two of them had right angle gears on the end, too.

Turbine components: bearings - Windpower News, Wind Energy

Jun 16, 2015· In main-shaft bearings, modular wind-turbine designs commonly use spherical-roller bearings (SRB) units that are more than 1m in diameter. Designers often select single SRB designs, one supported by a single main bearing and two torque arms that carry gearbox reaction loads. At least two factors contribute to early failures in main-shaft bearings.
