Rotor and blade in a wind turbine park.

    iRotor

    The project combines expertise from the wind turbine industry and scientific community on ultra wideband radio wave propagation and antenna capabilities and creates a new technology for measuring and control of wind turbine blades.

    The project will enable launch of intelligent rotor solutions that use the blade response as measure of wind field swept by the rotor and control wind turbine to allow use of longer and lighter blades. This sensor system will allow for a significant improvement in the cost of wind energy.
