Latest Turbine Stories
Mikel Abasolo, a researcher of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), has built a simplified simulation model for wind turbines.
Airfields for ultra-light aircraft are typically constructed on level ground – and so are wind farms.
A once-promising wind turbine prospect is getting a second look as engineers attempt to refine the technology for use in offshore power generation. Modern wind power is primarily generated by horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWT), but in the 1970s and 80s, during the early stages of wind power technology, another design was actively pursued because of its simplicity and reliability.
In a study that could solidify the trend toward construction of gigantic windmills, scientists have concluded that the larger the wind turbine.
