Wind turbine manufacturers have Another name for a turbine blade is an airfoil. Airfoils produce lift or suction by forcing the of the air along this path thins the air and produces a lower air pressure than on the concave or pressure side. The imbalance of air pressure means air wants to move from the high pressure side to the low pressure side, which produces suction to move the air, or a resulting lifting force on the airfoil (Figure 1-3).

The wind-exposed blade area is approximately 16 square meters (m 2 ), which is roughly 172 square feet (ft 2 ). 2 ) is: ) NOTE: 3. obtained by dividing the number of meters in 1 mile, 1609, by the number of seconds in 1 hour, One square meter = square foot. Multiply the square foot value by to convert the value into square meters. Example: x 172 ft 2 = m 2 Festo Didactic Inc

We can now plug the values into the equation and calculate an answer: Calculate the total force (F) acting on the blade: Force = Pressure x Area The blade area is 16 m 2 2 x16 m 2 Until now, we assumed the blade is at rest and the wind is blowing at a right angle to the direction of blade rotation. How does this change if the blade is moving? Direction of Rotation When a blade is rotating (Figure 1-5), it encounters a head wind (U). The strength of the head wind is dependent on two things: the speed of rotation and the distance from the center of the 4 Festo Didactic Inc

5 rpm, a blade length of 19 m (62.3 ft), and a diameter of 44 m (144.4 ft). The natural wind speed Which is the rotational speed in revolutions per minute times the swept circumference, divided by 60 seconds. The circumference of a circle is pi times the diameter or C = x D = Therefore: As the blade turns the Resulting wind (W r C 2 = (A 2 + B 2 ) C = square root of (A 2 + B 2 ) W r 2 + U 2 ) 0.5 W r = ( ) 0.5 This resulting wind (W r wind. It is split into a component in the direction of rotation (Fd) and a second component at against the tower, while the force (Fd) points in the direction of rotation and provides the driving torque to the main shaft. the blade as a result of its own movement is of great importance to the wind turbine blade, and its structural design must cope with the large forces and stress of operation. It is of great importance that the force on the blade is almost at a right angle to the resulting While a race car might feel wind resistance as a burden that must be overcome with extra Festo Didactic Inc

7 mechanical slewing drive is necessary. This drive precisely angles the blade while withstanding high torque loads. Many modern turbines use hydraulic pitch drive systems. These systems are often spring loaded. If hydraulic power fails, the blades automatically furl or turn into the wind. Some turbines use an electric servomotor for every rotor blade. They have a small battery design, and employ no electric or hydraulic controls. Wind Exposed Surface Force Vectors Figure 1-7. Variations in Pitch Angle. Speed control of the wind turbine can be accomplished using a pitch control system. As the increases (Figure 1-7). The force on a turbine blade is the result of the wind pressure multiplied effect of reducing the lifting force and force angle slowing the turbine. A rapid reduction in angle the blades turns perpendicular to the rotational head wind increases their drag. NOTE: This effect is similar to holding a canoe paddle in the current of a rapidly moving Festo Didactic Inc

10 Installation inspections begin with a review of the lifting equipment and installation procedure. hardware. Two additional inspections must then be performed: dynamic balance and aerodynamic alignment, which focuses on cone angle, partition angle, blade contour and twist, and pitch angel. Figure Cone Angle. Cone angle refers to the angle of the blades in reference to the plane of rotation (Figure 1-10). angle can be determined by setting the tilt angle, or angle of rotation relative to the tower, to optical equipment to determine misalignments (Figure 1-11). Figure Optical Blade Measurement. Partition angle refers to the space of blade angles on the rotor hub. The blade contour and twist refers to the shape of the blade and the changes in blade pitch along its length. Pitch angle refers to the angle between the blade chordline (Figure 1-12) and the rotor s plane of rotation. 10 Festo Didactic Inc

The last element of a proper wind turbine blade inspection and maintenance program are the routine or maintenance inspections. Because the rotor blades must endure harsh weather conditions, constant vibration, and wind and rotational-induced stress, it is important that a period inspection schedule be developed to ensure a long operational life. A general buildup compromise the integrity and performance of the blades. Examples of common maintenance procedures include: Inspect root-securing bolts for corrosion. Bolts are re-tightened to proper torque and ice. Cosmetic repairs can also be completed. damage are performed. Leading edge tape can be applied to protect and prolong the life of the blades by reducing edge erosion. Festo Didactic Inc

12 More sophisticated, non-destructive testing methods are also utilized. This include tests such as ultrasonic, tap, or infrared thermography. Automated testing methods have an advantage on visual inspections because they identify the suspected damaged area and provide measured data points. This is useful when determining and maintaining a permanent record of any damage. An ultrasonic inspection uses a sound source and receiver to graphically display a sound echo non-destructive composite inspection method in the industry. Full Tk Blade Wall Full Tk Full Tk Void Figure Ultrasonic Tester. The advantage of ultrasound scanning versus a general visual inspection is that it enables lamination. A tap test can sometimes be used to verify the results of an ultrasonic test, and it is another good method of discovering irregularities in the blade structure. The method is based on the and the main spar. There are three types of tap testing equipment: a manual tapping hammer, 12 Festo Didactic Inc

13 The last method mentioned is Infrared thermography. Large blades made of joined sections have adhesive joints that are critical points in the blade structure, and therefore must be inspected with care. Infrared (IR) scanners are used to examine a blade throughout its image, any point can be highlighted and analyzed later using electronic image processing. If Festo Didactic Inc
