Monitoring Conditions on Wind Turbine Gearboxes Prevents Downtime and Ensures Efficiency

A gearbox manufacturer needed to maximize the output efficiency of wind power stations to reduce the need for maintenance. To do this, they needed a solution that constantly monitors the temperature within the gearbox. Sensors on the gearbox would read the temperature and shut down the wind turbine/motor or reduce the speed in case of abnormal temperatures. The turbine speed would return to normal once the gearbox reached a normal temperature. In addition to preventing overheating, the information would be used at a central location to gather insight on the overall health of the wind power plant.
