Title
(EN) WIND TURBINE TOWER TRANSITION PIECE
(FR) PIÈCE DE TRANSITION DE TOUR D'ÉOLIENNE
Abstract
(EN)
A transition piece (140) for a wind turbine tower (110) is provided, that is configured to be installed on a tower foundation (111) and to carry a tower piece (113). It comprises a high voltage joint (10) with grid input and output terminals (11, 12) and WTG connecting input and output terminals (14, 13). The grid input terminal (11) is configured for receiving and connecting to an array cable (21) from a power grid (20). The WTG connecting output terminal (13) is operatively connected to the grid input terminal (11) for receiving and connecting to an input cable (23) leading to a switchgear (30). The WTG connecting input terminal (14) is configured for receiving and connecting to an output cable (24) from the switchgear (30). The grid output terminal (12) is operatively connected to the WTG connecting input terminal (14) for receiving and connecting to an array cable (22) leading to the power grid (20). Further, installation, testing, connecting and maintenance methods taking advantage of the high voltage joint (10) are provided.

L'invention concerne une pièce de transition (140) pour une tour d'éolienne (110), qui est configurée pour être installée sur une fondation de tour (111) et pour porter une pièce de tour (113). Elle comprend une jonction haute tension (10) avec des bornes d'entrée et de sortie de grille (11, 12) et des bornes d'entrée et de sortie de connexion de générateur éolien (WTG) (14, 13). La borne d'entrée de grille (11) est configurée pour recevoir et se connecter à un câble de réseau (21) à partir d'une grille d'alimentation (20). La borne de sortie de connexion de générateur éolien (WTG) (13) est connectée fonctionnellement à la borne d'entrée de grille (11) pour recevoir et se connecter à un câble d'entrée (23) menant à un appareillage de commutation (30). La borne d'entrée de connexion de générateur éolien (WTG) (14) est configurée pour recevoir et se connecter à un câble de sortie (24) à partir de l'appareillage de commutation (30). La borne de sortie de grille (12) est connectée de manière fonctionnelle à la borne d'entrée de connexion de générateur éolien (WTG) (14) pour recevoir et se connecter à un câble de réseau (22) menant à la grille d'alimentation (20). En outre, l'invention concerne des procédés d'installation, d'essai, de connexion et de maintenance tirant parti de la jonction haute tension (10).
