Improving Bearing Life and Performance with Computation …

Bearing manufacturers and their customers are seeking solutions to speed time-to-market of new products, increase customer confidence during sales cycles, and generate new revenue streams. Physical testing capabilities and industry standards are important for the product design and validation process. However, some of the bottlenecks such as the cost and time can increase the risk of developing innovations, increase the time-to-market of new products, and cause customer to have low confidence of product performance at new product launch.

Modeling of Complex Mechanical Systems

Mechanical systems, like helicopter gearboxes, are built of many complex sub-systems that require many different modeling and simulation tools to model specific phenomenon such as mechanical motion, heat transfer, and control system stability. Unfortunately, these different simulation models can be difficult or impossible to integrate together to form a model of the overall performance of a full system. Sentient Science uses Modelica language to accurately model subsystems and full systems in one unified model. Join us to learn how Sentient uses Modelica to efficiently and accurately model multi-body systems.

Extend Remaining Useful Life with Remanufacturing

Wind turbines have not achieved their expected 20 year lifetime due to gearbox and bearing failure. However, if the components in these machines are harvested at the correct time, they can be remanufactured to ‘better-than-new’ quality with extended life and performance. Our Lead DigitalClone Material Scientist, Dr. Raja Pulikollu, will present how prognostic tools can predict the optimal time and methods to remanufacture wind turbine gearboxes to promote overall ROI of a wind farm. The discussion will be valuable for your design and testing engineers to learn how to extend the RUL of wind turbines.

Predicting Wind Turbine Life with Computational Testing

Wind turbine manufacturers cannot test enough within industry budgets and time to market. Without enough testing, wind turbine components and systems have experienced unexpected failures in the field, leading to high warranty cost. If they could do more testing within the current time and budgets restraints, manufacturers and operators could predict reliability and evaluate how engineering and supplier quality trade-offs will improve life and performance.
