TÜV SÜD has expanded its method of calculating ice throw and ice fall from wind turbines. To ensure maximum precision in their results, the experts from TÜV SÜD have further optimised their method of calculation.
Next to orography and the meteorological input data from a site, they now also consider turbine-specific parameters such as speed characteristics, rotor blade heating and the possibility of failure of the turbine’s ice detection system. The calculations enable them to determine the hazard zone and provide assessment of any potential hazards for traffic routes or any possible damage to property.
