Tan Delta: Increasing Wind Turbine Efficiency Through Oil Condition Monitoring
Full spectrum holistic oil quality monitoring from Tan Delta for wind turbines, reduces operating costs and helps optimise power output.
As we become increasingly reliant on sustainable energy sources, the efficiency of wind turbine maintenance is coming under scrutiny. The single biggest source of unplanned maintenance is the gearbox which is especially susceptible to particulate and moisture contamination. Almost 80% of gearbox failures are caused by bearing wear, which is often accelerated due to poor oil quality management. Detecting early signs of pitting on bearings allows the ability to pinpoint optimal maintenance point, extending service intervals and ultimately a reduction in unexpected catastrophic failure.
The Tan Delta OQSx oil quality sensor uses unique FSH oil quality monitoring technology to reliably detect the early signs of bearing pitting. This capability gives wind turbine operators the opportunity to dramatically reduce life time operating cost. The cost savings derive from the ability to forward plan maintenance, and equipment failure. However, in addition to this, due to the increased reliability the overall power output is increased.
The OQSx is easily installed on any wind turbine gearbox and will continuously monitor the real-time quality of the oil. Data can be displayed locally, integrated with an existing telematics system, or streamed directly to the Tan Delta Online portal.
