Abstract
Modern wind turbines have a driving torque in the range of up to 10 MNm. The measurement of such high torques poses challenges, as there is no standard measurement equipment for this torque level available today. During the EU funded EcoSwing project, the world's first superconducting low-cost and lightweight multi-megawatt wind turbine generator has been designed and tested on the DyNaLab nacelle test rig of Fraunhofer IWES. For this test campaign, a specifically designed torque measurement system has been developed to measure the torque directly at the flange of the device under test in order to evaluate the efficiency of the power train.
