MN·m torque calibration for nacelle test benches using transfer standards
To verify all technical aspects of wind turbines, more and more nacelle test benches have come into operation. One crucial parameter is the initiated torque in the nacelles, which amounts to several MN·m. So far, no traceable calibration to national standards has been performed in such test benches. The paper will show calibration possibilities which already exist and also show future prospects.
