Structural Design and Analysis of Thrust Collar in Main Wind Turbine Speed-Increasing Gearboxes
Analysis has been made on the structure of thrust collar adaptedin main wind turbine gearboxes and a new design method for the thrust collar has been proposed. In addition, we presented a model of thrust collar which allows us to compute the stress distribution. It is showed that the design method is a practical one in thrust collar project of the main wind turbine gearboxes.
