Gearbox Reliability Collective

Ricardo is part of the Gearbox Reliability Collective (GRC) being co-ordinated by the US National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL).  The project involves instrumentation and measurement of loads in gearboxes mounted on a drivetrain test rig and in an operating wind turbine, and correlation of these with loads predicted using simulation tools.  Ricardo is using its SABR and VALDYN software tools to model the 3-stage gearbox with the objective of developing the most accurate and reliable approach to robust wind turbine gearbox design.
