11:30 - 13:00 Turbines operating in low temperatures
Room: Hall G2
Cold climate sites are characterised by the occurence of icing events and/or periods with temperatures below the operational limits of standard wind turbines. This session will address specific challenges faced during the operation of wind farms in cold climates. Topics include low-temperature compliance testing of wind turbines, methods for detection and analysis of icing events, as well as the operational performance of de- and anti-icing systems.
You attended this session?
- Learn about the importance of the increasing market share of cold climate wind turbines and the effect of such environment on wind turbine components;
- Gain insights in the behaviour of certain critical components in (extreme) low temperatures, its cold start-up performance and potential failure modes which have to be taken into account during design;
- Get an overview about icing basics and ice detection systems for wind turbines;
- Learn about tools used for modelling the thermal behaviour of a blade and respective de- and anti-icing system;
- Understand the uncertainties related to them, the methodology for their validation and the application.
