Analysis of wear in organic and sintered friction materials used in small wind energy converters
Wind energy converters of small size used in isolated units to generate electrical energy must present low maintenance cost to such facilities economically viable. The aspect to be analyzed in cost reduction is the brake system, since in isolated systems the use of brake is more frequent reducing the brake pads life time. This study aims at analyzing the wear behavior of some materials used in brake pads. An organic material was analyzed comparing it with a commercial brake pad, and thedoi:10.1590/s1516-14392008000300007 fatcat:fetyinjwardonmsaji72c7jaau
