Offshore wind power is expected to make a major contribution to electricity supply after the energy turn-around in Germany. Land-based wind turbine has proven its worth but its aging plants cause increasingly more problems. Experience may not be gained for better design and construction of new turbines unless this will have been based on systematic damage analyses. Therefore, damage types found in transmissions, components, frequency converters, towers, foundations and power electronic systems will be presented. The current state of early detection of damage in wind turbines and components will be addressed, too.
