Pitch systems, Yaw drives and more
Modern wind turbines are highly complex machines. Developing, operating, and sustaining such installations requires highly specialized know-how. The KEBA team of experts can draw on decades of experience and up-to-date training for the challenges to come. Our knowledgeable team is happy to assist with your needs in the areas of Pitch control systems, Yaw drive systems and aftermarket services.
Pitch control systems
Our team has many years of experience in the development of Pitch control systems. We assist you with designing your system and help you find a cutting-edge, cost-optimized solution.
- Drive design
- Safety concept in the Pitch system
- Storage sizing
The demand for lower wind turbine costs and LCoE extends to yaw drive applications, too. Conventional concepts with motors running directly on the grid involve certain technological drawbacks.
Unwanted loads due to abrupt start-up operations increase mechanical wear and tear. In addition, the electrical and hydraulic systems need to harmonize.
These problems can be addressed through the use of a controlled multi-axis drive system that synchronizes and optimizes the drive output power of the individual motors. KEBA’s modular KeDrive D3 system supports this approach using state-of-the-art servo drive technology.
Aftermarket products and services play a major role in our customer service offering. For service providers, KEBA offers quick, easy, and competent support for repairs and the procurement of spare parts and helps you select the right components for retrofit operations.
This ensures that defective wind turbines can be brought back online quickly.
Take advantage of our know-how! We look forward to receiving your inquiry.
Ease of maintenance
Reduced number of components
The Pitch drives include a PWM voltage brake driver for the direct actuation of the motor brake. Like the built-in backup power charger, this further reduces the number of components in the cabinet and maximizes availability and ease of maintenance.
