4th International Conference E/E Systems for Wind Turbines 19– 22 May 2014 | Germany E/E Systems for Wind Turbines Improving efficiency & enhancing reliability of E/E systems to reduce costs and minimise error in wind turbines Technological advances in the E/E systems are inevitable to increase wind turbine performance, reliability, efficiency and lifetime. Cost pressure remains a powerful driver for innovations in E/E systems. Furthermore, higher error rates in the electronic systems of a wind turbine can cause significant economic loss and trigger unplanned maintenance action. In order to grow market share and lower the cost of energy , wind turbine manufacturers and the supplier industry need to develop next generation E/E systems in wind turbines that comply with future requirements for on- and offshore applications. This year`s focus will be on: -Discover new pitch systems to reduce loads and optimise the energy yield in high or low winds -Review requirements from international grid codes to ensure compliance of the power generation system -Explore efficient ways for cost reduction and error minimization of generator and converter systems for greater wind turbine efficiency and longer lifetime cycles for E/E systems -Get the utilities’ view on decreasing maintenance costs with the improvement of reliability and availability of E/E systems -Evaluate tools and standards to manage data and interfaces between E/E systems to reduce the failure rates of components At this IQPC networking event, expert presentations are followed by discussions and interactive sessions. We are looking forward to meeting you in Bremen this year!
