Tutorial: Gear metrology for Wind Energy Systems

13 October 2021, time TBC

Tutorial to be given at euspen Special Interest Group Meeting: Precision Engineering for Sustainable Energy Systems

EMPIR project Metrology for enhanced reliability and efficiency of wind energy systems  (19ENG07, Met4Wind) will host a tutorial entitled ‘Gear Metrology for Wind Energy Systems’ at the euspen SIG Meeting: Precision Engineering for Sustainable Energy Systems.

Gears and gearboxes are an important part of many wind energy systems. Small tolerances account for high demands on manufacturing metrology for such components with complex geometry.

This tutorial session will show attendees how we currently measure gears, discuss some limitations of these processes and introduce participants to some of the strategies that are being researched.

The tutorial is aimed at technical staff, graduate and postgraduate engineers, post-doctoral researchers, operators and managers of wind energy systems responsible for purchasing, repairing or maintaining these facilities.
