Title (EN) ASSESSING REMAINING USEFUL LIFE FOR PORTIONS OF WIND TURBINE SUPPORT STRUCTURES
(FR) EVALUATION DE LA DURÉE DE VIE UTILE RESTANTE DE PARTIES DE STRUCTURES DE SUPPORT D'UNE TURBINE ÉOLIENNE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Methods for assessing the useful life that may remain for a portion of a wind turbine support structure. The methods may include identifying an overall expected useful life for the portion of the support structure and estimating an expended life from the extent of loading that has occurred to the portion of the support structure during the operative life of a wind turbine. The useful life remaining for the portion may be determined by subtracting the expended life from the overall expected useful life.
(FR)L'invention concerne des méthodes d'évaluation de la durée de vie utile restante de parties de structures de support d'une turbine éolienne. Les méthodes peuvent comprendre l'identification d'une durée de vie utile totale prévue pour la partie de la structure de support et l'estimation de la durée de vie écoulée en fonction de la charge qui a été appliquée à la partie de la structure de support durant la durée de vie opérationnelle d'une turbine éolienne. La durée de vie utile restante pour la partie peut être déterminée en soustrayant la durée de vie écoulée de la durée de vie utile totale prévue.
