Dimensional Integrity of Rotor Blade Hubs for Wind Turbines

Case Study Goldwind Xinjiang
Globally, wind power generation increased more than fivefold since the year 2000. With the global trend toward limiting CO2 emissions and numerous governmental programs subsidizing or financing wind power generation, its share of global power generation is set to experience substantial growth in the foreseeable future.
China is rich in wind energy, with about 1,000 gigawatts of potentially exploitable wind energy. This energy potential is distributed across the southeast coastal areas, adjacent islands, Inner Mongolia, Xinjiang, the Gansu Hexi Corridor, Huabei and the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau. In order to encourage technical innovation, market expansion and commercialization, development targets have been established, concession projects offered, and policies introduced to encourage domestic production.

Three-dimensional measurement and analysis of rotor blade hubs and their production facility are highly complex and demanding measuring tasks. Such measurements can be successfully dealt with only by using modern measuring systems and a well-prepared measurement strategy...
