Braking system design

We offer the following services to support you in the development of your own braking systems.

  • Review of received input data
  • Determination of number, type and distribution of calipers
  • Determination of number, size and distribution of yaw drives (if changes are needed)
  • CAD modelling of yaw brake disc and possible changes to the main frame
  • Setting up a global FEM model of the complete wind turbine  to determine the deformations and resulting loading on calipers, pads and bolts
  • Strength assessment of the following components:
    Yaw brake calipers
    Main frame
    Yaw brake disc
    Bolted connection between calipers and main frame
    Lower, upper and radial brake pads
    Verification of yaw drives and yaw pinion
  • Creations of specifications of for machinery components (yaw drives and pinion) and bolts (size, number, type, pretension level and tightening method)
