  • Cost-efficient and environmentally friendly wind energy

    Gearbox failure is the primary reason for downtime in a wind turbine and is extremely costly to replace. One of the main and most damaging causes of gearbox failure is ferrous metal contamination under 10 microns in size which leads to bearing failure. Metal contamination, the primary contaminant produced by gear wear, suspends in the lubrication oil causing premature bearing failure as it ...

  • A new algorithm improves the efficiency of small wind turbines

    In recent years, mini wind energy has been developing in a spectacular way. According to estimates by the WWEA-World Wind Energy Association, the level of development of the mini wind energy industry is not the same as that of the wind energy industry, although forecasts are optimistic. The main reason is that the level of efficiency of small wind turbines is low. To address this problem, the ...

  • New energy in search for future wind

    Scientists are taking the first steps to improve estimates of long-term wind speed changes for the fast-growing wind energy sector, intended to reduce the risks for generators in a changing climate. Some recent international studies have shown a decrease in wind speeds in several parts of the globe, including across Australia. However, more recent results by CSIRO show that Australia's ...
