Study - Ice Profile Classification

Presented at WinterWind 2013


Authors : Matthew Wadham-Gagnon, Dominic Bolduc, Bruno Boucher, Amélie Camion, Jens Petersen, Hannes Friedrich

The TechnoCentre éolien conducted a study, in collaboration with REpower Systems, dealing with ice build-up on wind turbines blades which led to the development of a method that can be used to classify the severity of icing events. The methodology developed along with meteorological and production data could lead to a more thorough understanding and/or validation of weather forecasting, wind turbine blade ice accretion models, ice protection systems and ice-induced vibration in wind turbines.
