R&D develops a more realistic and energy-efficient test method for wind turbines
In close collaboration with Aalborg University, R&D has completed the EUDP project regarding the development of a more realistic and energy-efficient test method for wind turbines.
The project has been a contributory factor in the development of one of the world’s largest and most advanced test benches for Highly Accelerated Life-cycle Testing (HALT) of components for wind turbines up to 10 MW. R&D has worked in close collaboration with Aalborg University in the project in which focus has been on the development of a test bench which conducts highly realistic tests, reduces testing time and consumes less energy than other test systems available today.
“It has been an inspiring collaboration with Aalborg University. The combination of our knowledge and expertise in the development of test systems for wind turbines and their competences within energy technology has led to a strong synergy, which has been of vital importance to the outcome”, Rico Hjerm Hansen says, Development Engineer at R&D Test Systems.
