Back-to-Back gearbox test rig

Preliminary investigation for the 1-MW-system test rig as well as measurements on a three stage WT gearbox have already been performed.

The gearbox runs through different test cycles such as speed build-ups and long term tests at constant speed and varying torques.
Beside the efficiency, also the displacement of the gearbox as well as temperatures and surface accelerations are gathered by different sensors.
