Artificial Intelligence Helps Tackle Blade Erosion for Wind Turbines

By [email protected] The VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland is looking for industry partners to test two anti-blade-erosion coatings for wind turbines that were developed using artificial intelligence.

The research body said blade erosion, which happens when rain, hail, dust and other particles eat away at the leading edge of turbine blades, is costing the wind industry a sum equal to between 2 percent and 4 percent of the value of all wind-generated power production.

A 2014 study, found that blade erosion could significantly impair the performance of wind turbines within as little as five years following installation, and could lead to
