Over the past few months, CESI's High Voltage Structural Testing Laboratory in Seriate (BG) conducted extensive long-life vibration tests on a Wind Power Plant Transformer.
These specialized tests aim to replicate stress cycles on components, simulating years of mechanical stress within a matter of hours. By subjecting the product to such rigorous testing, CESI can validate materials and explore innovative design approaches, leading to potential cost reductions and faster production times, all while surpassing the performance of existing equipment.
The success of these tests is attributed to the collaboration between ENERCON, the plant manufacturer, and J. Schneider Elektrotechnik GmbH, the equipment supplier, working seamlessly with the expert team of test engineers. The team, led by Paolo Magistris and Giulia Bergamo, and comprising Paolo Bontempi, Emanuele Lotto, Guido Tramontano, and operator Andrea Nicoscia, played a pivotal role in achieving excellent results. These achievements promise exciting new design possibilities for components in the wind power and renewable energy sectors.
