In recent years, the use of main bearing configurations in three-point mounting wind turbine drivetrains has become a much-debated topic. As a result, researchers at the National Wind Technology Center at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory are investigating a few potential solutions to mitigate main bearing failures. The image on the cover shows the main bearing pillow-block assembly inside the nacelle of a 1.5MW wind turbine. Click here to read the full article.
