Abstract [en]

In this paper we describe an active approach to the control of tribological components called "tribotronics". The structure and operation of a tribotronic system is described. The main advantage of these systems is that they contain actuators that allow changes/adjustments in component performance to be made in response to feedback (condition monitoring) signals in near real time. This approach can potentially address a developing problem at an early stage while providing a significant efficiency and cost savings through the reduction of on-site maintenance. Suggestions about how these systems could be usefully implemented in wind turbines are made.
