Next Generation Wind Power

In the late 19th century settlers in America began using windmills to pump water for farms and ranches, and later, to generate electricity for homes and industry applications. Now wind power technology is showing rapid growth and much more helpful than conventional power generation. WETO worked with industry partners to improve the performance and reliability of system components. Knight and Carver's Wind Blade Division in National City, California, worked with researchers at the Department of Energy's Sandia National Laboratories to develop an innovative wind turbine blade that has led to an increase in energy capture by 12% The of the  blade is a gently curved tip, which, unlike the vast majority of blades in use which have the unique and most distinctive characteristic is designed by Sweep Twist Adaptive Rotor (STAR) to take maximum advantage of all wind speeds, The National Renewable Energy Laboratory's National Wind Technology Center (NWTC) has driven acceleration to industries. Using computational fluid dynamics to develop the Simulator for Wind Farm Applications and other modelling and controls tools, which help wind farm operators minimize the impact of turbine wake effects by investigate plant performance under a full range of atmospheric conditions. By coordinating turbine controls to curtail wake effects, the overall wind power plant output could be increased by 4%–5%.
