Rotorblattheizung Rotor Blade Heating

In order to enable planners and operators of wind turbines to assess the effectiveness of the rotor blade heating system of the company Vestas, the Energiewerkstatt Verein carried out an independent evaluation of this hot air rotor blade de-icing system as part of a research project. For this purpose, operating data of two wind turbines of the type Vestas V112 – 3MW at an Austrian location with high icing susceptibility (IEA icing class 3) at about 1000 m above sea level were used.
