The reliability and service life of wind turbines are directly influenced by the dynamic performance of the gearbox under the time-varying wind loads. The control of vibration behavior is essential for the achievement of a 20-year service life. We developed a rigid-flexible coupled dynamic model for a wind turbine gearbox. The planet carrier, the housing, and the bedplate are modelled as flexibilities while other components are assumed as rigid bodies. The actual three points elastic supporting are considered and a strip based mesh model is used to represent the engagement of the gear pairs. The effects of gear tooth modifications on the dynamics were investigated. Finally, we conducted a dynamic test for the wind turbine gearbox in the wind field. Results showed that the contact characteristics of gear pairs were improved significantly; the peak-to-peak value of transmission error of each gear pair was reduced; the amplitudes of the vibration acceleration and the structural noise of the wind turbine gearbox were lowered after suitable tooth modification. © 2017, The Korean Society of Mechanical Engineers and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg.

Considering a class of networked control systems with time-varying delays, the fault detection is carried out with the presence of output delays and packet dropout in sensor data. By increasing sampling frequency in controller and equally dividing the sampling period of the sensor, the time delays could be approximate to an integral multiple of the sampling period of the controller. On this basis and the conditions of data arrival of controller, the error equation of the fault observer was constructed based on a discrete asynchronous dynamical system. And a linear matrix inequality gave the stability condition of this observer. When the system was normal, if the given inequality condition was satisfied, the observer system was stable. When a fault was present, the observer residue could change rapidly and detected the occurrence of the fault. Finally, an illustrative example was given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method. © 2010 IEEE.

Dynamic performance of a speed-growth gearbox being a core device of a wind power generating system has a direct effect on the whole wind power system. Here, the basic structure and driving principle of a megawatt level wind turbine gearbox were analyzed, the gear teeth modification volumes of its all pairs of gears were calculated and the dynamic performances of the gearbox before and after modification were tested. The results revealed that rational gear teeth modification can improve the dynamic performances of the wind turbine gearbox, the main vibration frequencies of the wind turbine gearbox focus on the mesh frequencies and their multiple-frequencies of its output stage and middle-level transmission. After modified, its vibration acceleration, shock response spectrum and vibration intensity dropped at these frequencies accordingly. This study provided an important basis for gear teeth modification of a wind turbine gear box and optimization of its dynamic performance.

Considering a class of networked control systems built around wireless sensor networks (WSN), the control method is carried out when the output delays are present. Firstly, by studying the characteristics of data transmission with wireless sensor networks, the original system state vector was augmented, and the augmented state feedback control system was obtained. Secondly, the equation of the closed-loop control system was equal to the discrete switched system related to the hop count of the wireless transmission. Finally, a simulation example was given to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method. © (2011) Trans Tech Publications.

Since the wind turbines are installed on the flexible support tower, the drive train of the wind turbines runs under severe work conditions with varying wind directions and loads. So its failure rate is high and it is the bottle neck of the wind power development. This work presents a study which takes the coupling effect of oscillating of tower barrel and the twisting vibration of driven train into account. Using the lumped parameter method, a coupled dynamic model for the megawatt wind turbine drive train is built by considering the flexible tower barrel support effects. Then, the dynamic characteristics of the megawatt wind turbine drive train are analyzed. The Campbell chart is used in this research to analyze the potential resonance points. And the potential resonance frequencies between the cutting in and cutting out rotational speed of the drive train are obtained. Finally, Simpack is used to analyze the dynamic characteristics of drive train and verify the correctness of the proposed method. ©, 2015, Chongqing Medical University. All right reserved.

Gear micropitting phenomenon is common in megawatt-class wind turbine gearbox because of the hard operating environment and complicated load case. More and more attention has been paid to it during recent years. Main factors influencing gear micropitting, such as surface roughness, modification coefficient, oil temperature, are discussed in this paper according to ISO/TR 15144-1:2010. Reasonable values for the factors are suggested and software for calculating micropitting is developed. Based on observation and discussion, measures for reducing gear micropitting risk in wind turbine gearbox design are proposed. ©, 2015, Chongqing Medical University. All right reserved.

Kinematic accuracy is a key reason which influence workpiece's geometric error precision on traditional working process of precisely CNC(Computerized Numerical Control)P3G(polygon profile with 3 lobes) grinding machine. A systematic geometric error model has been presented for CNC P3G grinding machine, proposed multi-body system theory integrate with the structure of CNC P3G grinding machine tools, researched on the machine's space geometric errors.
