  • Cost-efficient and environmentally friendly wind energy

    Gearbox failure is the primary reason for downtime in a wind turbine and is extremely costly to replace. One of the main and most damaging causes of gearbox failure is ferrous metal contamination under 10 microns in size which leads to bearing failure. Metal contamination, the primary contaminant produced by gear wear, suspends in the lubrication oil causing premature bearing failure as it ...

  • Energy answer: Blowing in the wind?

    When the federal government approved the Cape Wind project in April, allowing 130 power-generating turbines to be placed in the waters off Cape Cod, it gave a significant boost to the prospects of wind energy. The comparatively high costs of wind power, however, remain a problem. But in a study, MIT researchers have concluded that some of the price problems associated with wind power can be ...

  • A new algorithm improves the efficiency of small wind turbines

    In recent years, mini wind energy has been developing in a spectacular way. According to estimates by the WWEA-World Wind Energy Association, the level of development of the mini wind energy industry is not the same as that of the wind energy industry, although forecasts are optimistic. The main reason is that the level of efficiency of small wind turbines is low. To address this problem, the ...
