CE&P Vertical Axis Turbine Wind Concentrating and Blade Protection Properties

The Cal ePower 10kW vertical axis wind turbine at all times measures the wind speed and direction of the wind by means of an on-board wind vane and anemometer. In low and moderate wind speed conditions the on board computer tells the drive motor to align the concentrator into the eye of the wind. [PAUSE] […]

UWM researchers develop wind turbine blade that can heal itself

Wind turbines are made to turn gusts into energy, but in the process, they can crack from extreme weather. That can be dangerous and expensive. One possible solution? Blades that heal themselves the way blood clotting closes wounds. That’s the idea behind a technique created by UWM mechanical engineering professor Ryo Amano and his former […]
