Main Factors for Leading Edge Erosion
Leading edge erosion protection is one of the most significant factors for driving down OPEX.
Rain, hail, ice, UV, water absportion and other weather conditions erode the leading edge on the turbine blade. This affects the aerodynamic of the blade and could cause sevear damages.
This seminar includes up to 8 talks about this issue, followed by a workshop session to discuss the most sigificant factors for the leading edge erosion.
