Work Package 3. Testing

Objectives

The objective of this WP is to test the completed pitch system to confirm that it meets all its requirements, and that early failures in service are avoided.  Testing is, as far as possible, to mimic real-life load conditions.  Testing will be conducted both standalone, with the pitch system on a test rig, and with the hub attached to the turbine.

Deliverables

  • 1 Test specification
  • 2 Test rig manufacturing drawings and component specifications
  • 3 Test method and sign-off matrix
  • 4 Pitch system rig test report
  • 5 Test report for pitch system integrated with Mk2 turbine
  • 6 VPS Test Rig
