Title: Mod 1 wind turbine generator failure modes and effects analysis

Abstract

A failures modes and effects analysis (FMEA) was performed for the Mod 1 Wind Turbine Generator. The analysis was directed primarily at identifying those critical failure modes that would be hazardous to life or would result in major damage to the system. Each subsystem was appraoched from the top down, and broken down to successive lower levels where it appeared that the criticality of the failure mode warranted more detail analysis. The results were reviewed by knowlegeable specialists from outside the Mod 1 program, and corrective action taken whenever recommended.
