Wind Turbine Technology
I have several questions relating to gearbox designs - a. If you are scaling a gearbox for a 5mw turbine, how much larger would the ring gears become relative to say a 3mw turbine design? B. What is the downside to direct drives? Why are these not completely replacing gearboxes? C. Is there a potential for cvt to replace traditional gearboxes on larger rated turbines? Is cvt an unlikely candidate to displace traditional gearboxes?
