Gearbox Reliability Collaborative (GRC) Description and Loading

Research output: NRELTechnical Report


This document describes simulated turbine load cases in accordance to the IEC 61400-1 Ed.3 standard, which is representative of the typical wind turbine design process. The information presented herein is intended to provide a broad understanding of the gearbox reliability collaborative 750kW drivetrain and turbine configuration. In addition, fatigue and ultimate strength drivetrain loadsresulting from simulations are presented. This information provides the bases for the analytical work of the gearbox reliability collaborative effort.
