Study on Dynamic Characteristics of Wind Turbine Planetary Gear System Coupled with Bearing at Varying Wind Speed
The sparse least squares support vector machines (SL-SVM) is used to simulate wind speed of real wind field, and time-varying wind load caused by stochastic wind speed is then obtained. A coupling gear-bearing dynamical model of planetary gear transmission system of wind turbine is built using lumped-parameter method, in which the varying wind load, time-vary mesh stiffness of gear pair and time-vary stiffness of rolling element bearing are taken into account. Numerical method is used to simulate the dynamic performance of planetary gear transmission of multibrid technology wind turbine (MTWT) with 1.5MW rated power, the vibration displacement responses of gears and dynamic meshing forces of gear pairs as well as nonlinear bearing forces in the transmission system are obtained, and the influence rules of external varying wind load on the vibration characteristics of transmission system of wind turbine are studied. The research results lay a foundation for dynamic performance optimization and reliability design of gear transmission system of wind turbine.
