Abstract

The present invention proposes a technique to provide protective device to a drip loop power cable in a wind turbine. The technique includes a bearing type of arrangement inside a bracket from where the drip loop power cable is passing. While yawing, the drip loop power cable rotates and touches inside surface of the bearing. This allows movement of the power cables in clockwise and counter clockwise direction. The bearing type arrangement or circular balls rotates 3600 degree, which favors axial and radial movement.
