The CHALLENGE

DOCC-OFF PROJECT AIMS TO REDUCE THE IMPACT OF SOME HYDRAULIC PITCH SYSTEM FAILURE MODES ON THE WIND TURBINE´S DESIGN LOAD CASES

The main challenge of DOCC-OFF will be to validate the sensors, remote monitoring systems and big data analytics tools that will allow to obtain data from the pitch system, which is the system used to adjust the blades in wind turbines by rotating them so that they use the right fraction of the available wind energy to get the most power output, meanwhile ensuring the turbine does not exceed its maximum rotational speed

The project

This project pursues to use the knowledge extracted from the operational data to improve the design of the hydraulic pitch system, increasing its reliability and reducing the impact on the wind turbine´s design load cases.
