Title: Commercialization of an Advanced Gearless Midsize Wind Turbine

Abstract

The objective of this project was the development and eventual commercialization of a Gearless Wind Turbine of rated power 450 kW. While the product was to be based on existing technology, a significant amount of new engineering effort was expected to be required to ensure maximum efficiency and realistic placement within the market. Expected benefits included positive impact on green job creation in over 15 states as well as strengthen the U.S. domestic capacity for turbine engineering.
