To guide generation planning and feasibility studies, this annual report provides current cost and performance estimates for onshore and offshore wind projects in the United States and abroad.
By relying on field forces rather than physical contact between surfaces to achieve high rotational speed, magnetic gears can potentially reduce the mass and cost of drive-trains for wind turbines rated above 10 megawatts, while improving efficiency and reliability. This brief report provides an overview of the technical basis, status, and potential of magnetic gearboxes […]
This study examines combining bendable concrete (also known as engineered cementitious composite) and high-strength concrete to construct taller wind turbine towers with enhanced durability. It discusses development, characterization, and selection of materials and quantifies the economic advantages.
