For nearly 50 years, the deepening meteorological tooth wind industry more than ten years, already deeply realize globalization, technology progress and idea innovation for an enterprise or industry, the significance of social development. Now, the company is looking to promote itself and the progress and development of the entire wind power supply chain.
As one of the important parts of wind power unit, gearbox is a key part of the wind power supply chain. According to the meteorological gear group managing director Dr GouJianHui introduction, "the market concentration is higher in the field of global wind power gear box, meteorological gear group (hereinafter referred to as" meteorological tooth) as a global leader in wind power transmission equipment, by the end of 2015, to market has more than 50000 typhoon 300000 sets of electric transmission equipment main gearbox and yaw/is analyzed.studying transmission equipment, has delivered more than 68 gw wind power main gear box, products all over the world and stable operation, occupy the international market share of 29%, the domestic market share of more than half, ranks first in the world."
With over the years has always insisted on technology innovation, management innovation and talent, through continuous efficient technology optimization, and enlarge the independent research and development investment and in manufacturing process excellence, meteorological tooth developed a series of products with independent intellectual property rights and the international advanced level. The meteorological r&d each year more than 3% of sales, r&d and engineering team more than 500 people, the core technology has obtained several national patents, 120 and more than 100 from the government to all kinds of technical progress and quality award by the customer. At present, nangao fangshan has a whole series of products covering 750 kw to 6.5 mw, which can be adapted to low temperature, high temperature, low wind speed, high altitude, sea and other special conditions. Based on the characteristics of high reliability, high cost performance, high bearing capacity and high efficiency of these products, it is widely used in domestic and overseas host manufacturers and shows good performance.
Behind these achievements as well as the meteorological tooth of core technology, high reliability products, but also due to meteorological tooth "be sustainable growth of the industry leader" strategic objectives, "doing gear box and transmission technology solutions experts" strategic positioning, and uphold the "for users and social responsibility is responsible for yourself"
And the core idea of "responsibility to be in place, once to do the right" is more crucial to the exact direction and consistency of the south high teeth in the practice of "innovation" and "internationalization".
In the case of nangao fangs, the market does not lack products, but lacks good products.
So far, the wind turbine gearbox is mainly designed according to the specifications provided by the wind turbine manufacturer, resulting in a large number of specifications and different sizes of wind gear box products. In addition, the new product development cycle is long, the scale of production is limited and the cost structure is difficult to optimize, and the product reliability risk brought by the new design. According to the meteorological tooth a technician told reporters, the "wind", "global running 1.5 MW and above there are about 400 kinds of wind turbines, the wind generator for supply chain security considerations, each unit will have more than two suppliers, which means that there will be more than 800 species of the main gear box is analyzed.studying and more than 1500 kinds of yaw drive equipment to match." Instead of similar and generator, bearing, blade and lubrication system, the existence of a wide variety of components for wind turbines in terms of cost or from the management on the wind farm operations to bring very great challenge. At the same time, in order to guarantee the sustainable development of wind power industry, continuous upgrading of the core competitiveness of wind power and other energy, wind power industry on the whole life cycle of lower electricity costs, shorter product development cycle and higher reliability of key components continuously put forward new expectations.
To cope with the challenge of the above, the meteorological gear based on the accumulation of years of experience, a large number of field practice and industry application of big data analysis, in September 2016 in Hamburg international exhibition on the wind, the world first introduced the application of large database based on wind farm, modularization, seriation concept design of the main gear box series product is analyzed.studying and yaw drive platform, NGC StanGear ™. It is understood that the application of the standardization, seriation product platform modular concept and reliability technology, users can according to NGC StanGear ™ platform sample design requirements and their own host, directly select a match most of wind power gear transmission products, or choose the recent products and do a small amount of adaptive changes, so as to realize the competitive advantage of low cost to market. The launch of the platform will make the new product development cycle long, the cost structure difficult to optimize and the wind farm maintenance complex and so on the problems can be solved.
According to meteorological tooth r&d staff, currently NGCStanGear ™ series product platform can provide two kinds of product development process for customers to choose, one is NGCStanGear ™ selection process, the other is a customer customized product development process. If the customer product design specification and NGC StanGear ™ is matching, intermediate complex design iterative process can be simplified in great quantities, as long as the minor adjustments can meet customer demand, the process that is standard NGCStanGear ™ selection process. On the contrary, if the customer product design specification and NGCStanGear ™ is weak or match the effect is not ideal, can use customized product development processes, that is, from the customer information input to the conceptual design to detail design, will produce a series of iterations during the process, until the late product verification test, tests of wind farm, finally meet customer requirements. , choose NGC StanGear ™ selection process compared with the new custom product development processes can save 12 to 20 weeks product development cycle, make product compared with other traditional way can be listed ahead of time, increase the product competitiveness. In addition, in order to be able to play a better NGC StanGear ™ series product platform, meteorological tooth researchers also said, "want to wind turbine manufacturers to host at the beginning of the new product research and development projects with meteorological tooth for technical communication."
Meteorological teeth, as it were, the introduction of NGCStanGear ™ series product platform is the years of research and development, manufacture, application and operational experience into innovation, also can say that is a complete design concept of innovation. Through the use of NGC StanGear ™, in product design and development level, the user can directly selection or optimization based on the platform, dispense with the design and calculation of iterative process, shorten the product development cycle, reduce the cost of product development; At the manufacturing level, because have the mature technology and equipment, key parts procurement and processing time can be greatly shortened, and the manufacture technology are also continuing to upgrade, can satisfy the requirement of the product high quality; In the aspect of product testing, the series product platform adopts after factory and wind field validation of modular design, can save the test cost, and product platform and key parts have been validated by complete plants and wind farms, can simplify the experiment process, save test time. In product reliability level, the product development process USES the German automotive industry association VDA6.3 standard, products widely used DFMEA tools in terms of product reliability design, and the reliability of the application of advanced technology. In addition, due to the increased parts commonality, NGC StanGear ™ series product platform can greatly reduce component types and models, to form the scale effect of the whole supply chain, so as to reduce cost and improve efficiency. It also reduces the response time of spare parts by reducing the spare parts model, and the maintenance cost can be reduced.
NGC StanGear ™ wind is analyzed.studying the main gear box and yaw drive series product platform, the advent of new product development will help users to bring lower cost, shorter product development cycle, higher reliability of products, higher scale effect of supply chain and quality service operations. Meanwhile, the supplier of gearboxes will benefit greatly. "Meteorological tooth is committed to not only the standardized series of the product platform innovation and promotion, we also hope to promote and increase the scale of the wind power supply chain effect, thus truly for the wind power industry and the sustainable development of contribution to the improvement of the overall level of a force." As NGCStanGear ™ series product platform of starter and promoters, Dr GouJianHui said.
In meteorological tooth point of view, constantly adhering to the product and technology innovation is a enterprise to become a main core competitiveness of the industry leaders, but to remove products and technology innovation, break the routine, and develop a new business model is also very important.
According to bloomberg new energy finance published research report estimates that between 2015 and 2022, the Chinese wind farm operations spending a total of 111 billion yuan or, by 2022, the Chinese wind farm operations cost will be increased to 20.8 billion yuan a year. According to the five-year guarantee period, a large number of wind turbines will be guaranteed in the last few years. Industry experts calculate a calculator: single typhoon electric unit ManFa income is about more than 160 160 yuan, but if a major accident, such as gear box big fault, its replacement cost summation may exceed one million yuan.
Due to aimed at the large customer demand and huge potential of wind power market, after operations in 2016, the meteorological tooth after set up the wind power market business development department, in order to enhance customer value as the goal, in line with the "timely services, local services, preventive services" strategy, dedicated to provide customers with more quality services to the whole product life cycle of, at the same time also to continue to expand new business and seek new business growth point, support the sustainable development of the market. "In many cases the so-called as after-sales service, but understand meteorological tooth mainly from two aspects: in terms of product cost, in addition to the cost of production, late also includes the use of cost" meteorological gear group after wind power market, head of business development, "and from the Angle of product application, service may be limited to the production manufacturer, or from the customer demand for manufacturers, but the integration of high product like wind turbines, the service will be an all-encompassing, covers the entire product life cycle process of any link. The south high tooth is to build a reliable cycle of all these processes from design and manufacturing to installation, remote diagnosis, spare parts service, training, maintenance overhaul, and product optimization upgrade.
The purpose of the whole life cycle management is to integrate the design and manufacturing and operation maintenance. The purpose is to decrease the failure rate of the gearbox and maximize the customer's benefit. "At present, the wind turbines in service is bound for repair and replacement, and, based on the manufacturer is to convert to the supplier's current situation, the meteorological tooth for the user to create the whole life cycle of wind turbines maximum value, and customer win-win ultimate goal." "Said the head of the project to wind power.
According to the controller introduces, meteorological tooth after market business development through in-depth analysis of service data, by means of the localization service network, will provide professional service for global users response, data engineering, spare parts management and on-site service, and use the experience of continuous improvement. Subsequent market services will include upgrade services, infrastructure services, extension service and customized service, the transmission chain can cover customer need assessment, under the tower and the tower of maintenance, technical support, technical training and special custom services. When referring to service, the relevant person in charge of meteorological tooth stressed that "meteorological tooth with many years of accumulated rich gear box inspection, operation maintenance data, established the products' health records, through comparing the gearbox running data and test data analysis, can provide comprehensive gear box, operation, maintenance or overhaul scheme will be failure in the bud '." The aim of this preventive service strategy is to reduce the probability of unplanned downtime and to use planned maintenance to protect the user's income.
In the past two years, with the accelerating of internationalization, meteorological operations center, meteorological tooth India company successively opened in 2016, meteorological tooth in continuously strengthen based in China, the United States, Germany and Singapore's global service network, provides a full range of solutions to the global partners at the same time, with instant convenient service support. "With the support of global service network, meteorological tooth will be anywhere for the global customers with the best quality, the most appropriate gear box maintenance solutions, helping our clients achieve transmission system high availability and low cost operation." Dr Chi-fai explained to the reporter.
Throughout the whole life cycle of wind power products, the early stage of the one-time purchase cost due to affected by various factors, optimize the space is limited, but is related to the economic benefits of the owners operating costs and maintenance costs is can be done by operational service further reduced. With the development of Internet of things technology and the advent of industry 4.0, the demand for intelligent products of customers is higher and higher. In the face of the situation, for the product whole life cycle of data mining and management becomes particularly important, meteorological tooth wind gearbox condition monitoring system (hereinafter referred to as CMS) based on the trend arises at the historic moment.
Based on many years of research and development, manufacture and testing field for gear box has rich experience and to understand and master the working state of gear box, meteorological tooth launched in October 2016 Beijing exhibition on the wind of the CMS, designed to help customers to build a platform based on condition monitoring of large data, from bench test before delivery to the practical operation of gear box, all data will be summary to meteorological wisdom tooth cloud center for deep processing. "With the aid of this platform, the remote service, the customer can clearly understand the gear box and other key components of the damage process and the residual service life and greatly optimized operational plan, improve asset management capabilities." The technicians responsible for the system describe the customer value of CMS to wind power.
According to introducing, after the installation of the CMS system, customers can real-time monitoring of the tower, and stored into the data, and the CMS system operation function, and for the calculation, this is largely reduced the client hardware investment on computing devices. "Using the flexible data collection mechanism, the data processing function of the powerful tower can improve the effectiveness of monitoring data and reduce the bandwidth demand. In addition, the support of the expert team of gearbox can make the analysis of failure mechanism more accurate, the solution more effective, and also can provide targeted technical services to customers. "The system has a quick response service, which can be integrated with the diagnosis and repair programme, and the gearbox spare parts inventory," said the system development technician. In addition, CMS is supported by the whole life cycle data of gearbox to improve the accuracy of fault diagnosis.
However, the role of CMS is much more than a monitoring platform. It can also help customers quickly verify invalidated parts and failure principles. On this basis, the meteorological tooth engineer will give the corresponding repair measures and spare parts management plan, again through the cloud platform to share data and customer, let the customer see the product the first time the running state, and using the method of "machine learning" to bring more value-added services for our customers.
It is worth mentioning that meteorological tooth also is able to run the factory test data, field data and maintenance data together, by the meteorological tooth design engineers, application engineers, field service engineers, gear box, experts and authorized service provider of professional technical support team through the cloud platform, for every customer to provide all-round complete operational maintenance overhaul plan, namely YuFangShi services, will be "symptoms" killed in the bud, it may be said to the gear box with a smart "health experts", for personalized service at any time. "With CMS, it will make our service more like a tiger." A CMS system development engineer at nangao tooth said.
