'Computational testing gives a more refined picture of true system performance' - Recharge

Wind turbines are expected to run 20-plus years in the field, but the industry knows that components within the systems often fall short of their design life expectancy – in some cases, it’s been calculated that there has been a 68% difference in field-life between design test and the actual operational life for fleets of wind turbines. Differences in the expected reliability and durability of wind turbines, as predicted during the physical test phase, often occur because it can be very difficult and economically prohibitive to build and operate test rigs that match actual field loading conditions. In fact, ground-based dynamic test rigs require stiff supporting structures that cannot closely replicate the transient loading conditions observed in the field. And the actual events that occur in operation can be vastly different from what’s been assumed in the design and test...
