TITLE: Cost reduction of wind energy by a better understanding and prediction of premature bearing failures


In this presentation you will learn about the cost reduction of wind energy by development of innovative methodologies to better understand premature bearing failures and predicting such failures well in advance. The SIM-MaSiWEC project brings added value to new generation of wind turbines, improved retrofits by better redesigned gearboxes, and reduction in down-time by early fault detection.
