Clarification of drive-train design goals

Technical Report:

Abstract

The overall dynamic behaviour and hence performance of a wind turbine is due to a combination of the structural dynamics, the drive-train and generator dynamics and when the turbine is pitch regulated, the control system dynamics. Designing a well-behaved wind turbine requires that the drive-train is designed to complement in some sense the other wind turbine dynamics. The need for such an optimised drive-train is enhanced by the trend towards lighter, more flexible wind turbines and towards larger wind turbines with generators of lower slip. This report aims to clarify the drive-train design goals and to determine the specification and dynamic characteristics of a well designed drive-train. (author)
