Increased reliability of heating systems on wind turbine blades

​The project will study and evaluate common damages on blades and develop fast and reliable repair methods to increase the function of de-icing equipment in order to secure efficient production from wind turbines. In addition, new technology to monitor the functionality of AIS-systems (Anti-Ice Systems) will be evaluated. Experiments and validation will mainly be performed in the process laboratory at Swerea SICOMP but also on a full scale wind turbine. The main target is to increase the efficiency of wind turbines in cold climate under icing conditions.
