Abstract

The impact of control on structural elements such as tower and blades have been thoroughly researched and the validity of analysis methods based on aeroelastic
simulations is widely accepted. The implications on gearbox wear for various control strategies is less studied. Using RomaxDesigner for gearbox analysis, MLS and Romax have carried out an investigation where the impact of different control strategies on wear is assessed. The best measures accounting for gearbox
damage are described and the different control strategies and their impact on the gearbox are detailed.
