Last week, the Moventas team in Italy executed a training session for ENEL Green Power.

Moventas training sessions are tailor-made to suit customer needs, this time at the core of the training was vibration analysis. The aim of the training is to allow managers, team leaders and technicians to receive the necessary technical know-how and information for dealing with vibration analysis matters in their daily work.

The course covered the fundamentals, and other elements, of advanced analysis of complex drive-trains, which are a typical occurrence in the wind industry. Moventas provided participants with the knowledge and training needed to perform autonomous diagnostic assessment of the clients’ machinery, or the ability to interpret and discuss a technical vibration report received from a vibration specialist.

The training materials always include relevant and up-to-date case studies. The course also utilized the live analysis of data stored in the Moventas databases. The main body of the course consists of the following elements:

  • Vibration analysis basics
  • Frequency domain analysis
  • Time domain analysis
  • Rolling elements bearing analysis
  • Bearing life-cycle
  • Gearbox diagnosis
  • Vibration analysis on wind turbine drive trains


“(Training session at Moventas is) a very profitable opportunity to share knowledge, experience and best practice about vibration-based condition monitoring of wind turbines.”
