TÓM TẮT
Wind turbines are typically designed for a target service life of 20 years because of fatigue-related failures, which often occur in moving components such as the rotor and blades. Designing the tower to have the same lifetime as other components is required for optimizing the wind turbine. This study focuses on fatigue life of the wind tower due to a mode I fatigue of the welded base connection only. A model for fatigue assessment, including crack propagation, was developed for the tower base connection. The allowance of crack propagation is expected to extend the service life of the tower in comparison to conventional fatigue life analysis using the S-N curve approach. An illustrative example of fatigue life design for a typical 5-MW wind turbine in Colorado for different operational conditions is then presented. The results of this study will benefit the design of new wind turbine towers and condition evaluation of existing wind turbine towers.
