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.
