Breakdown of the Yaw Orientation System
When operating wind turbines, one of the most common failures can be found in the breakdown of the Yaw Orientation System.
Turbines operating in extreme weather conditions, continuous gear stress, and the general aging of equipment, can greatly cause the orientation system to malfunction.
Such malfunctions can include heavily damaged gears, visible frame cracks, and broken or sworn out teeth.
These issues when left unaddressed can create extensive repair problems, inefficient energy production, and overall revenue loss.
