Nabtesco Ensures Gear Strength and Endurance in Gusty Wind Conditions

For more efficient conversion of the kinetic energy of wind into mechanical energy, or ‘wind power,’ additional control over the position of each turbine’s nacelle and blades is essential. This is the task of the yaw and pitch drives, which adjust the physical orientation of those components in response to fluctuations in the velocity and direction of prevailing breezes. To help improve strength and endurance in nacelle yaw and blade pitch drives, Nabtesco Corporation of Japan uses SIMULIA’s Abaqus finite element analysis (FEA).
