Compact yaw drives for wind turbinesBonfiglioli reckons its multistage, planetary gearmotors provide the perfect solution to meet the needs of compact yaw drives for wind turbine control. More compact than existing solutions, this innovative system for nacelle orientation control comes equipped with integrated motor and brake, is inverter ready and grants a simpler maintenance over the product lifetime.
These yaw control multistage planetary gearmotors are available for wind turbines from 1.5-3.5MW, both for onshore and offshore application. The design provides a 20% height reduction for a smaller package without any compromise in performance. The new gearmotors also weigh 8% less, and use 11% few components that traditional solutions, reducing design complexity. Further benefits include easier installation with an innovative nacelle connection system, and simpler maintenance, plus a service intervale of 10 years.
