HBDV

To date, there are no certified approaches for estimating the service life of rotor blade bearings. The HBDV joint project "Design of Highly Loaded Slewing Bearings" aims to draw up a guideline with the aid of which rotor blade bearings can be designed safely and uniformly in the future.

HiL-GridCoP

Within the project, a new test stand is being set up and a new testing methodology for minimal systems – comprising a high-speed generator and a converter system for WT - will be developed. The aim is to accelerate the procedure of electrical certification and to improve predictability of the market launch for new products.

HiPE-WiND

In order to test the high-performance electronics used in wind turbines subject to combined climatic and electrical loading realistically, test and trial facilities for complete converters are being developed for turbines with outputs of up to 10 MW. For this reason, the causes of failure are also being researched and concepts for optimizing the robustness of power electronics are being developed and tested in experiments.
