    The estimation of the size and location of defects in multi-layered composite structures by ultrasonic non-destructive testing using guided waves has attracted the attention of researchers for the last few decades. Although extensive signal processing techniques are available, there are only a few studies available based on image processing of the ultrasonic B-scan image to Cited by: 3. The first part of the thesis studies the main similarities between the various classes of current blade-pitch control strategies, which have to date remained overlooked by mainstream literature. It also investigates the feasibility of an estimator design that extracts the turbine tower motion signal from the blade load measurements.   I (April ), pp EFFECTS OF TRANSIENT LOAD ONGASTURBINE BLADE STRESS AND FATIGUE LIFE CHARACTERISTIC BARHM MOHAMAD1 AND SAAD JABBER NAZAL2 1 Air Drilling Associates, Inc,Iraq 2 University of Thi-Qar, Iraq Abstract The turbine blade is the most important component in the jet engine gas turbine.

The design life of a wind turbine is often said to be around 20 years. In practice it is frequently observed that components in a turbine fail earlier and must be replaced before the stated lifetime. Therefore, it is very important for the stakeholders of wind turbines to be able to get a good estimation of a component’s remaining lifetime soFile Size: 2MB.

The pitch bearing, also named blade bearing, is a component of modern wind turbines which connect the rotor hub and the rotor blade. The bearing allows the required oscillation to control the loads and power of the wind turbine.

The pitch system brings the blade to the desired position by adapting the aerodynamic angle of attack. The pitch system is also used for emergency. This paper is concerned with life estimation of a turbine blade taking into account the combined effects of centrifugal stresses, vibratory stresses and thermal stresses.

The stresses are determined by accounting for the rotor by: 6. Valeti B., Pakzad S.N. () Estimation of Remaining Useful Life of a Fatigue Damaged Wind Turbine Blade with Particle Filters.

A problem for wind turbine operators is decreasing prices for wind-generated electricity. Many turbines are approaching their rated year lives.

A more economically viable and sustainable solution that reduces Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) and avoids expensive turbine replacement is retrofitting new spar caps blades.
