Project: A direct drive SWT with aerodynamic pitch control of wind rotor blades and yaw oscillation damper

We want to develop innovative technologies and make functional blocks for a direct drive small wind turbine of a horizontal axis, exploitable with minimal service. We will deliver a prototype of an efficient SWT, class I, 2.7 kW, D=3.75m, 11 m/s) for standalone/grid applications, remote control by an electronic controller, with aerodynamically adjustable pitch of durable composite wind rotor blades, a pitch synchronisation system and a yaw oscillation damper in strong, turbulent wind.
