We know that an aircraft bearing component is quite important in aviation, but let’s take a look at another industry— wind energy. Wind turbine technology is on the rise as more U.S. companies look to invest in renewable energy.Bearings are an important component used in wind turbine operation, and they are often utilized in the main shaft. There are two integral bearing variations that you will come across within the main shaft of a wind turbine— spherical roller bearings and tapered roller bearings.
Tape bearings (TRBs) are designed to improve the powertrain performance of the turbine. They are engineered to provide increased stability to the main shaft through a load sharing construction of rows, and predicted roller-to-race interactions. There are three main types of TRBs, including: widespread single TRBs, large diameter TRBs, and single preloaded TRBs.
