This free e-book investigates how to use physics-based models and general OEM documentation to estimate the remaining lifetime of a wind turbine component. The main findings in this e-book can be broken down into two parts: the lifetime estimation of a wind turbines main bearing using measurement data and physics based models and the information available to wind farm owners in OEM design documentation to make internal component lifetime calculations using physics based models.
During 2013 the team behind Breeze has been hard at work with adapting Breeze to be a useful tool for not only developers performing wind measurement campaigns but also for owners and operators of operating wind farms. The product is now ready and commercially available. It is called Breeze Production.
