Collecting data under the sky!
Mechmine is collecting vibration data of gearbox and generator bearings of the largest Swiss wind turbine.
Wind power stations can have complex gearboxes, typically with planetary gears, and run rather slowly when compared to hydro-electric generators. Both poses fascinating challenges do the developers of automated bearing and gear defect detection algorithms. The data collected at this site will complement the bearing and gear data library of Mechmine.
Mechmine LLC would like to thank Calandawind AG for their kind support.
