ADC.Bushing is an innovative and new development in the field of bushing concepts for rotor blades of wind turbines.
The force transmission between rotor blade and metal insert has been completely redeveloped. In contrast to other bushing-concepts, the ADC.Bushings are embedded in a matrix. This matrix eliminates stress peaks at the end of the metal inserts. This allows higher forces to be transmitted by the bonding.
The system combines the simplicity and low-accuracy layup process of a T-Bolt connection with the narrow packing and high force ability of a bushing connection. This enables OEMs to manufacture easily and cost-effectively with the potential of a high vertical integration.
The blade root bending moment can be increased by 30% with the same BCD. The mass of the blade connection is reduced by 30% at the same time.
The presentation describes the technical details and introduces the advantages of ADC.Bushings.
