Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paperpeer-review


Exposure to adverse weather conditions is regarded as one of the most sensitive topics when it comes to wind turbines. The starting point of the inspection is defined by the procedure of
establishing the facts regarding wind turbine's blades' surface and structural condition as well as the functionality of Lightning Protection System (LPS).
Particular attention will be directed toward the problem of pitch and yaw control using wind turbine’s control system (pitch1
, yaw2 ) via specialized software used to test the current condition of the blades.
A three-dimensional display using Cornis software package in combination with an electronically controlled rotating mechanical joint is used for the purpose of inspecting the actual condition of the blades.
