Plane brakes for yaw systems
The ESM plane brakes for yaw systems damp and brake the rotary motion during the wind tracking of the nacelle. At nacelle standstill, the ESM plane brakes for yaw systems transmit the yaw torque from the nacelle to the tower and hold the nacelle in position.
Compared to classical disk brakes, which generate the brake forces with the help of guided pistons, the ESM plane brakes for yaw systems generate the brake forces via innovative elastomer-hydraulic cushions.
