Effect of Lightning Strikes on Wind Turbine Blade Life.

Severino, Christopher.

Abstract: Understanding the effects of lightning strikes on wind turbines becomes increasingly important as the size and rated power of wind turbines increase and as they are placed in locations where repair is difficult and costly, especially for offshore applications. When the lightning strikes, it can locally increase material temperature at the strike zone, inducing high compressive localized ... read more
