Title (EN) IMPROVEMENTS RELATING TO WIND-DRIVEN GENERATOR APPARATUS
(FR) AMELIORATIONS SE RAPPORTANT A UNE EOLIENNE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Wind-driven generator apparatus with variable pitch blades. The apparatus includes a yaw damping arrangement (60) for resisting weathervaning rotation of a head assembly (18) of the apparatus about a vertical axis and the apparatus further includes a pitch control mechanism (102) for the blades which maintains the pitch substantially constant during normal operating r.p.m. of the blades but allows the blades to pitch up in an overspeed condition, and a brake mechanism (86) for the generator shaft which includes an adjusting mechanism (216) that compensates for wear in the brake.
(FR)Une eolienne possede des pales a pas variable. L'appareil comprend un dispositif d'amortissement (60) pour resister a la rotation d'une tete (18) de l'appareil autour d'un axe vertical; l'appareil comprend aussi un mecanisme de pas variable (102) des pales qui maintient le pas sensiblement constant pendant le fonctionnement normal des pales mais permet a celles-ci d'augmenter leur pas dans des conditions de survitesse, et il comprend aussi un mecanisme de frein (86) pour l'arbre du generateur qui comporte un mecanisme d'ajustement (216) pour compenser l'usure du frein.
