Large bearing test bench starts continuous operation

Fraunhofer's test bench for rotor blade bearings of up to 6.5 meters in diameter has been successfully commissioned at the institute’s Hamburg facility, paving the way for automated continuous operation.

Manufacturers and operators stand to benefit, as the accelerated tests – simulating 20 years of service in six months of testing – will enable them to increase the reliability of large rolling bearings and develop new calculation methods and designs. What’s more, a bearing can be validated on the test bench long before it is installed in a wind turbine, something never before possible in this manner. The aim is to lower development costs and reduce yield loss in order to make it more economical to operate wind turbines up to 10 MW. The noise of the... ...
