Oil Analysis in Wind Turbines
The wind turbine gearbox is the most critical component in terms of high failure rates and down time. These premature gearbox failures are a leading maintenance cost driver that can substantially lower the profit margin of a wind turbine operation as they typically result in component replacement.
Oil analysis, along with other condition monitoring tools, offers the potential to effectively manage gearbox maintenance by detecting early damage.
