Power Engineering: Extending Bearing Life in Wind Turbine Mainshafts

Damage and failure modes are occurring sooner than expected, and for many wind farm operators, the cost of unexpected down tower repairs is adding up.

Wind turbines contain multiple bearings that each wears differently, and today, larger stresses in larger turbines are challenging conventional bearing designs. Tony Fierro, Application Engineer Specialist for Timken, details how operators can maximize bearing life in these applications.
