Title:
CONNECTING DEVICE FOR A LIGHTNING PROTECTION SYSTEM OF A WIND TURBINE
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2013/144279
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
The invention relates to a connecting device for connecting a first lightning protection conductor, which can be rigidly connected to a rotor blade of a wind turbine, to a second lightening protection conductor, which is fixed to a rotor hub of the wind turbine. The invention also relates to a wind turbine comprising such a connecting device. The connecting device comprises a first and a second transmitting means. The first transmitting means is non-rotatably mounted on the rotor blade and is connected to a first lightening protection conductor arranged in the rotor blade, and the second transmitting means is connected to a second lightening protection conductor arranged on the rotor hub. The second transmitting means is arranged so as to be movable in a rotatable manner about a rotational axis running parallel to a longitudinal axis of the rotor blade but is simultaneously secured such that the two transmitting means cannot move relative to each other in the radial or axial direction of the rotational axis.
