31 January 2023 - Published by Charlotte Lundsberg Baumgartner

The aim of this study is to assess and analyze the damages to wind turbines onshore and offshore in order to reduce the risk of potential failures, damages and collapse of wind turbines. Thus, damages and failures that may occur in wind turbines will be identified, and the importance of strengthening wind turbines and certain maintenance requirements will be discussed.

It will be attempted to be aware of the potential challenges that these systems may face and to contribute to their long-term viability.
