  • Publication number: 20210339795
    Abstract: An electromechanical steering system may include a reduction gearbox where a worm gear is mounted in first and second bearings rotatably about a longitudinal axis. Rolling elements are disposed between inner and outer rings of the bearings. The inner rings are rotationally fixed on a shaft driven by the worm gear. A spring element is disposed between the inner ring of the second bearing and the worm gear. The spring element has an at least partially annular main body that when installed extends coaxially with the longitudinal axis. Spring arms in a circumferential direction are spaced apart from the longitudinal axis emanating from an external circumferential side of the main body. A first spring arm has a first leg that points away from the longitudinal axis and a second leg on which a free end is disposed, with the second leg running at least partially parallel to the longitudinal axis.

  • Patent number: 10906018
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for enclosing either hydrophobic or hydrophilic substances in silica-based micro- and nanocapsules via emulsion techniques. More specifically, it relates to a method for the preparation of 0.01-100 ?m, particularly 0.01-10 ?m, silica-based microcapsules containing up to 99% (w/w) payload using a silica precursor polymer, polyalkoxysiloxane (PAOS), preferentially polyalkylalkoxysiloxane (R-PAOS), which acts not only as a silica source but also an emulsifier. In order to obtain mechanically stable capsules, the conversion of PAOS or R-PAOS is accompanied with the solidification of the organic phase. For the encapsulation of hydrophobic substances, oil-in-water emulsions are formed. The formation of water-in-oil-in-water double emulsions is required to encapsulate hydrophilic compounds.

  • Publication number: 20200102932
    Abstract: A wind turbine including yaw control comprising a controller receiving an input signal, and providing an output control signal to a yaw actuator. The input signal to the controller is based on: a first feedback signal that is indicative of the relative wind direction determined with respect to the wind turbine, wherein the first feedback signal is filtered with a first low pass filter; and a second feedback signal that is indicative of the activity of the yaw actuator. The control technique of the invention significantly improves the ability of a yaw system to maintain a zero degree yaw error during steady state wind conditions, or in other words to maintain an accurate heading of the nacelle pointing into the wind, as well as reducing the maximum yaw error experienced during yaw system activation.

  • Patent number: 10378513
    Abstract: To efficiently nm a wind turbine in varying wind speeds, the wind turbine may be configured to switch between two different electrical configurations that offer different efficiencies depending on wind speed. For example, a star configuration may be preferred during low wind speeds while a delta configuration is preferred for high wind speeds. Before switching, the power output by the turbine's generator may be driven to zero. Doing so, however, removes load from the rotor blades which cause the rotor speed to increase. Instead, the rotor speed may be controlled such that the speed stays at or above the speed of the rotor immediately before the generator power is ramped down. Maintaining rotor speed at or slightly above the current speed while switching between electrical configurations may mitigate the torque change experienced by the turbine and reduce the likelihood of structural failure.

  • Patent number: 10359026
    Abstract: A method and associated control arrangement are disclosed for controlling a de-rated power output of a wind turbine generator, where the wind turbine generator is associated with a predetermined power ramp rate upper limit and operating with a de-rated rotor speed. The method includes ramping the power output from an initial power level to a target power level during a ramping interval. During a first portion of the ramping interval, the power output is ramped at a first power ramp rate less than the power ramp rate upper limit. The method further includes ramping the rotor speed to a predetermined rotor speed value contemporaneously with ramping the power output during the first portion of the ramping interval. The first power ramp rate is determined such that a difference between the power output and the target power level is monotonically decreasing during the entirety of the ramping interval.

  • Patent number: 10161261
    Abstract: To identify abnormal behavior in a turbine blade, a failure detection system generates a “fingerprint” for each blade on a turbine. The fingerprint may be a grouping a dynamic, physical characteristics of the blade such as its mass, strain ratio, damping ratio, and the like. While the turbine is operating, the failure detection system receives updated sensor information that is used to determine the current characteristics of the blade. If the current characteristics deviate from the characteristics in the blade's fingerprint, the failure detection system may compare the characteristics of the blade that deviates from the fingerprint to characteristics of another blade on the turbine. If the current characteristics of the blade are different from the characteristics of the other blade, the failure detection system may change the operational mode of the turbine such as disconnecting the turbine from the utility grid or stopping the rotor.
