Componets and systems

Windrad Engineering can develope almost all main components in-house. These are, e.g., hub, shaft/axis, machine frame, generator frame as well as mechatronic systems such as pitch and yaw including locking devices.

We support blade design by structural analysis and our broad knowledge basis. Besides standard gear box solutions, Windrad Engineering is able to design a compact direct drive turbine with generator integrated into the complete design. This requires also mode and deformation analysis to secure a minimal air gap. Electrical design is delivered by our customers.

We have special expertise in tower design, generally speaking, support structures, including offshore support structures. Site specific and cost effective design of tubular steal towers is realized with our highly advanced in-house tools. Windrad Engineering offers expertise in very high towers through concept studies and own research.

Windrad Engineering has designed a large number of nacelle covers and spinners, even more have been analysed for structural stability.

Also for difficult or unseen challenges customers can rely on experience and skills of the Windrad Engineering teams.

Mechatronics

Modern actuator modules for the  pitch system including dynamical feed back in our simulation environment allows us to design a custom-fit  pitch system. Concerning yaw systems we rely on standard solutions with roller bearings and brake systems, but we also design suitable slide bearings with mit matching friction pads.
