Isaac Segovia and Fausto P. Garcia have attended to the Wind Turbine Icing & Ice Prevention Forum, held in Wyndham Garden Berlin Mitte, Berlin, Germany, from 4th - 5th November 2017. Fausto, speaker´s committee, has presented the advanced done in Icing Windturbine Blades. The conference has analysed the following topics in different workshops:

Market Trends and Ice Detection Experience

WIND RESOURCES ASSESSMENT AND FORECASTING

IN COLD CLIMATE CONDITIONS

ICEPHOBIC COATING AND TURBINE PERFORMANCE

IN COLD CLIMATES

BLADE DEFECT DETECTION AND CONDITION

MONITORING

ICE FALL PREDICTION AND RISKS ASSESSMENTS

Fausto was presenting a case study on Ultrasonic Signals for Icing Blades Detection and Blade

Condition Monitoring, considering

  • Icing blades prediction
  • Ultrasonic waves to detect ice on blades
  • Case study on NDT to predict ice on wind turbine blades
