A bolt tightening and integrity monitoring system for metal joints in wind turbine towers
Inductight is a bolting integrity system that uses two complimentary engineering disciplines to ensure bolting integrity for joining metals together to form a rigid member for a structure.
The system is digitally enhanced and has a base artificial intelligence (AI) software driving the machine learning aspect. The Inductight concept focuses on full automation of the bolt tightening process (with real-time human overriding capabilities at any point of the workflow) combining AI and machine learning (ML) software engineering techniques to deliver a system that addresses the key issue of bolt slackening.
The benefits of this new concept are based on but not limited to, some of the following points: power generation optimization through an effective real-time proactive monitoring strategy where bolt integrity is monitored and maintained on a continual autonomous basis; minimizes the operational and maintenance costs incurred compared to conventional bolting services and support; the reliability of a predictive integrity management process, with major emphasis on its application to the RAM aspects of production and cost reductions for O&M;
