Abstract


The  gearbox  of  a  wind  turbine  is  the  component  of  greatest  mechanical  complexity and is responsible for most wind turbines operational downtime and  for  increased  costs.  It  doesn’t  reach  a  20  years  projected  life.  All  the studies, until now, indicate that these failures arise from the design process. This  work  demonstrates  some  of  the  inadequacies  of  the  current  design  standards of wind turbines gearboxes, through the realization of a comparison of  the  results  of  the  calculation  of  the  helical  parallel  transmission  of  an  2,5  ME  wind  turbine,  carried  out  by  three  ways:  ISO  6336:2006  Method  B  and  AGMA  2101-D04  (Metric  Edition)  standards  and  by  using  numeric  simulation.  The  results  of  this  analysis  are  that  there  are  no  problems  of  strength  or  rigidity  in  both transmissions,  however  the  differences  between  these three calculation methods are considerable.
