    Haixia Kou1,*, Bowen Yang1, Xuyao Zhang2, Xiaobo Yang1, Haibo Zhao1

    Structural Durability & Health Monitoring, Vol.18, No.3, pp. 277-297, 2024, DOI:10.32604/sdhm.2024.045023

    Abstract Given the difficulty in accurately evaluating the fatigue performance of large composite wind turbine blades (referred to as blades), this paper takes the main beam structure of the blade with a rectangular cross-section as the simulation object and establishes a composite laminate rectangular beam structure that simultaneously includes the flange, web, and adhesive layer, referred to as the blade main beam sub-structure specimen, through the definition of blade sub-structures. This paper examines the progressive damage evolution law of the composite laminate rectangular beam utilizing an improved 3D Hashin failure criterion, cohesive zone model, B-K failure criterion, and computer simulation technology.… More > Graphic Abstract

    Research on Carbon Emission for Preventive Maintenance of Wind Turbine Gearbox Based on Stochastic Differential Equation

    Hongsheng Su, Lixia Dong*, Xiaoying Yu, Kai Liu

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.4, pp. 973-986, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2023.043497

    Abstract Time based maintenance (TBM) and condition based maintenance (CBM) are widely applied in many large wind farms to optimize the maintenance issues of wind turbine gearboxes, however, these maintenance strategies do not take into account environmental benefits during full life cycle such as carbon emissions issues. Hence, this article proposes a carbon emissions computing model for preventive maintenance activities of wind turbine gearboxes to solve the issue. Based on the change of the gearbox state during operation and the influence of external random factors on the gearbox state, a stochastic differential equation model (SDE) and corresponding carbon emission model are… More > Graphic Abstract

    Computational Verification of Low-Frequency Broadband Noise from Wind Turbine Blades Using Semi-Empirical Methods

    Vasishta Bhargava Nukala*, Chinmaya Prasad Padhy

    Sound & Vibration, Vol.58, pp. 133-150, 2024, DOI:10.32604/sv.2024.047762

    Abstract A significant aerodynamic noise from wind turbines arises when the rotating blades interact with turbulent flows. Though the trailing edge of the blade is an important source of noise at high frequencies, the present work deals with the influence of turbulence distortion on leading edge noise from wind turbine blades which becomes significant in low-frequency regions. Four quasi-empirical methods are studied to verify the accuracy of turbulent inflow noise predicted at low frequencies for a 2 MW horizontal axis wind turbine. Results have shown that all methods exhibited a downward linear trend in noise spectra for a given mean wind… More >

    Qifa Lang, Yuqiao Zheng*, Tiancai Cui, Chenglong Shi, Heyu Zhang

    Energy Engineering, Vol.121, No.2, pp. 483-498, 2024, DOI:10.32604/ee.2023.042437

    Abstract This work presents a novel approach to achieve nonlinear vibration response based on the Hamilton principle. We chose the 5-MW reference wind turbine which was established by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), to research the effects of the nonlinear flap-wise vibration characteristics. The turbine wheel is simplified by treating the blade of a wind turbine as an Euler-Bernoulli beam, and the nonlinear flap-wise vibration characteristics of the wind turbine blades are discussed based on the simplification first. Then, the blade’s large-deflection flap-wise vibration governing equation is established by considering the nonlinear term involving the centrifugal force. Lastly, it is… More >

    Ice-Induced Vibrational Response of Single-Pile Offshore Wind-Turbine Foundations

    Zhoujie Zhu1, Gang Wang1, Qingquan Liu1, Guojun Wang2, Rui Dong2, Dayong Zhang2,3,*

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.20, No.3, pp. 625-639, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.042128

    Abstract Important challenges must be addressed to make wind turbines sustainable renewable energy sources. A typical problem concerns the design of the foundation. If the pile diameter is larger than that of the jacket platform, traditional mechanical models cannot be used. In this study, relying on the seabed soil data of an offshore wind farm, the m-method and the equivalent embedded method are used to address the single-pile wind turbine foundation problem for different pile diameters. An approach to determine the equivalent pile length is also proposed accordingly. The results provide evidence for the effectiveness and reliability of the model based… More >

    Yuanjun Dai1,2,*, Xin Wei1, Baohua Li1, Cong Wang1, Kunju Shi1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.20, No.2, pp. 337-348, 2024, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.042434

    Abstract To study the impact of the trailing-edge wear on the vibrational behavior of wind-turbine blades, unworn blades and trailing-edge worn blades have been assessed through relevant modal tests. According to these experiments, the natural frequencies of trailing-edge worn blades −1, −2, and −3 increase the most in the second to fourth order, the fifth order increases in the middle, and the first order increases the least. The damping ratio data indicate that, in general, the first five-order damping ratios of trailing-edge worn blades −1 and trailing-edge worn blades −2 are reduced, and the first five-order damping ratios of trailing-edge worn… More >

    Gated Fusion Based Transformer Model for Crack Detection on Wind Turbine Blade

    Wenyang Tang1,2, Cong Liu1,*, Bo Zhang2

    Energy Engineering, Vol.120, No.11, pp. 2667-2681, 2023, DOI:10.32604/ee.2023.040743

    Abstract Harsh working environments and wear between blades and other unit components can easily lead to cracks and damage on wind turbine blades. The cracks on the blades can endanger the shafting of the generator set, the tower and other components, and even cause the tower to collapse. To achieve high-precision wind blade crack detection, this paper proposes a crack fault-detection strategy that integrates Gated Residual Network (GRN), a fusion module and Transformer. Firstly, GRN can reduce unnecessary noisy inputs that could negatively impact performance while preserving the integrity of feature information. In addition, to gain in-depth information about the characteristics… More >

    Baohua Li1, Yuanjun Dai1,2,*, Jingan Cui1, Cong Wang1, Kunju Shi1

    FDMP-Fluid Dynamics & Materials Processing, Vol.19, No.12, pp. 3033-3043, 2023, DOI:10.32604/fdmp.2023.029583

    Abstract To reduce the vibration and aerodynamic noise of wind turbines, a new design is proposed relying on a blade with a bifurcated apex or tip. The performances of this wind turbine wheel are tested at the entrance of a DC (directaction) wind tunnel for different blade tip angles and varying centrifugal force and aerodynamic loads. The test results indicate that the bifurcated apex can reduce the vibration acceleration amplitude and the vibration frequency of the wind wheel. At the same time, the bifurcated apex can lower the maximum sound pressure level corresponding to the rotating fundamental frequency of the wind… More >
