Wind turbine productivity considering electrical subassembly reliability.

Arabian-Hoseynabadi, H. and Oraee, H. and Tavner, P. J. (2010) 'Wind turbine productivity considering electrical subassembly reliability.', Renewable energy., 35 (1). pp. 190-197.


This paper proposes a reliability model for the electrical subassemblies of geared wind turbine systems with induction generators. The model is derived considering the failure of main subassemblies and their parameters are calculated. A productivity comparison is performed between the selected wind turbine systems including reliability issues. Two methods of modification for variable-speed wind turbines with Doubly Fed Induction Generators (DFIG) to improve their availability are finally suggested.

Item Type:Article
Keywords:Wind turbine, Doubly Fed Induction Generator (DFIG), Reliability model.
