The worldwide wind turbine brakes industry is predicted to reach USD 400 million by 2025, with a CAGR of 7% between 2020 and 2025. Wind turbine brakes require higher cycle speeds, higher loads, greater reliability and often in more compact packages than conventional wind turbines equipment. Yaw brakes provide an effective means of smoothly controlling the nacelle of a wind turbine when it is turning "against the wind" or spinning. An anemometer signals a change in wind direction that excites the motor that drives the crown of the yaw system. Wind turbine engineers agree that a mechanical disc brake is the best solution in terms of reliability, simplicity of manufacture, ease of maintenance, and upfront cost. Disc brakes are known for their excellent performance in harsh environments, which is why they are employed in cranes, heavy vehicles and other safety critical applications. Another reason is that a disc brake requires little physical space compared to the braking force it provides.
Wind turbine brakes are employed to hold the turbine in place and prevent the rotors from moving. They are applied for maintenance operations and in extreme climatic conditions where excessive wind speed can damage the turbine. Wind turbine brakes are also employed to hold the turbine in place when the turbine faces mechanical failure. The level of braking torque for rotor brakes is a critical consideration that must be calculated during the initial stages of brake design. On the other hand, high speed shaft braking is usually related to the maximum allowable load of the gear teeth. There is also a minimum level of braking torque below which the varying nature of friction forces under different operating conditions could endanger the turbine rotors. Therefore, it is important to provide an adequate safety window, or a service factor, to ensure that the brakes always work effectively and in all weather conditions. Many major players such as ANTEC Group, Hilliard Corp, and Dellner Brakes AB are investing in R&D to curb the costs associated with solar equipment manufacturing to augment the implementation of this off-grid solar equipment. The development is predicted to have a substantial impact on the expansion of the company's industry share during the foreseen period.
Dellner introduces new lightweight fail-safe brakes for wind turbines. Dellner Brakes, manufacturer of state-of-the-art braking systems, has introduced two new spring-loaded fail-safe brakes to its SKP range. Combining reliable power with a lightweight, modular design and competitive pricing, the brakes adjust to improve braking on wind turbines.
The main factors driving the expansion of the worldwide industry for wind turbine brakes are the escalating call for power generation from wind energy and the increase in government initiatives to adopt offshore wind for electricity production. Also, the escalating call for sustainable power generation to reduce harmful gas emissions is also predicted to have a significant impact on the expansion of the worldwide wind turbine brake industry during the foreseen period. The development of large-scale wind turbines has significantly boosted the installation of offshore wind projects around the world. Low speed axle braking is relatively simple, as a large disc brake, with a large friction lining area, is easy to adapt. Unfortunately, the installation here requires high braking torque. The high gear ratios of wind turbine reducers produce a large reduction in output torque. In many cases, a serious consideration when choosing brakes is choosing a friction lining area of sufficient size to ensure adequate heat dissipation during emergency stops. The energy to be dissipated is the same wherever the brake is placed, which means that the total area of the lining must be the same. This also means that the area of the brake pads must be sufficient to control the rise in temperature. These requirements are more difficult to meet on the high-speed axle as speed and space will be limiting factors when it comes to maximum disc diameter and brake selections.
The worldwide industry for wind turbine brakes is predicted to experience high expansion during the foreseen period due to the escalating call for renewable electricity. This is predicted to stimulate call for wind turbine brakes during the outlook period. The expansion of the target patient population, ongoing technological advancements, favorable medical reimbursements, escalated call for minimally invasive thrombectomy procedures and escalated healthcare spending in emerging industries are some of the key drivers for expansion of this industry. Factors such as the increase in the number of research activities in the field of thrombectomy and the expansion of the application of ultrasound in vascular treatment are predicted to provide new expansion opportunities for industry players over the course of the foreseen period.
