|20130280039||Wind turbine with oil lubrication - Lubrication method and wind turbine comprising a rotor with a hub supported by a main bearing with two opposite bearing races coaxially spaced by rotatably fitted bearing rollers in a lubrication area which is sealed by oil sealing rings between the bearing races. The lubrication area comprises one or more oil inlets operatively connected to an oil supply, and one or more oil outlets. The vertical distance between the outlet(s) and the lowest point of the lubrication area is 0-0.2 times the inner diameter of the outer bearing race. The inlet (s) and the oil supply are configured to supply an oil flow not exceeding the drain capacity of the one or more outlets.||10-24-2013|

Prefabricated bottom tower section for a wind turbine comprising electric equipment, e.g., positioned on two or more floors.||07-05-2012|
|20120146423||WIND FARM ISLAND OPERATION - A method and a system are described for island operation of at least two wind turbines associated with a wind farm, wherein said wind farm is configured for providing power generated by wind turbines in said wind farm to a main grid and wherein the method comprises: detecting at least two or more deactivated wind turbines in said wind farm, said deactivated wind turbines being disconnected from said main grid; configuring at least one islanded local grid for electrically connecting said two or more deactivated wind turbines; activating at least one of said deactivated wind turbine using a black start operation; and, connecting said at least one activated wind turbine and at least one of said deactivated wind turbines to said local grid, said activated wind turbine acting as a power supply for said at least one deactivated wind turbine connected to said local grid.||06-14-2012|
|20120056435||WIND TURBINE AND A DIRECT-DRIVE GENERATOR - A wind turbine of the horizontal axis, direct-drive type, comprises a hub provided with one or more blades, a generator with a centerline that is technically horizontal, the generator comprising an inner rotor which is driven by the hub and an outer stator, the stator comprising a front plate, a back plate and stacked, arcuate laminates. The front plate and the back plate are connected by tension rods so as to form a stator unit with the stacked, arcuate laminates being sandwiched between the back plate and the front-plate under compression, the arcuate laminates having protrusions over the circumference of the stator for dissipating heat to the atmosphere. The invention also relates to a direct-drive generator.||03-08-2012|
|20120043763||OFFSHORE WIND PARK - Wind farm comprising at least one buoyant structure having two corners provided with a wind turbine and a third corner comprising a mooring section, e.g., with a disconnectable mooring turret. The third corner does not carry one of the wind turbines. Shared facilities for the two wind turbines, such as a helideck and/or electrical equipment, such as a converter and/or transformer, can be located on or near the third corner.||02-23-2012|

The protective cover is a composite comprising a layer of UV-resistant thermoplastic material and a layer of cured epoxy resin, the UV-resistant thermoplastic material having the following properties a surface free energy of less than 35 mJ/m||02-09-2012|
|20110304149||WIND TURBINE COMPRISING A COOLING CIRCUIT - Wind turbine comprising a tower with an interior enclosed by a tower wall which forms a heat exchange surface in an air cooling circuit wherein the tower interior forms a channel for guiding hot air along a flow path, wherein one or more air flow deflectors are arranged within the flow path for guiding the flow towards the tower wall. The flow deflectors can for example be active flow deflectors, such as fans or blowers, or passive flow deflectors, such as one or more static flow deflector plates or vanes, forming a static mixer element.||12-15-2011|
|20110200427||WINDTURBINE COMPRISING A BEARING SEAL - Wind turbine provided with a bearing supporting a hub carrying rotor blades, the bearing comprising a rotational bearing race connected to the hub and a stationary bearing race, a lubrication area between the bearing races which area is confined at both ends by first seal rings sealing the gap between the rotational bearing race and stationary parts to form a lubrication barrier. At one or both ends of the lubrication area a redundant seal ring is arranged at a distance from the first seal ring in or near the gap to be sealed.||08-18-2011|
|20110116935||METHOD OF MANUFACTURING A TURBINE BLADE HALF, A TURBINE BLADE HALF, A METHOD OF MANUFACTURING A TURBINE BLADE, AND A TURBINE BLADE - An aspect of the invention relates to a method of producing a turbine blade half using resin infusion molding. The method includes providing a mold for a turbine blade shell with fiber mats, placing a strengthening member over the fiber mats in the mould; placing a air-impermeable sealing layer over the fiber mats and against the strengthening member; introducing a curable resin in the fiber mats under reduced pressure, including in the area below the strengthening member; and curing the resin to form a turbine blade half, said turbine blade half comprising a turbine blade shell attached to the strengthening member. An aspect of the invention also relates to a turbine blade half, a method of producing a turbine blade, and to a turbine blade.||05-19-2011|
