iRotor project: intelligent rotor blade technology to reduce energy costs

Project Details


The project is funded by Innovationsfonden with the industry partners of LM Wind Power A/S, KK Wind Solutions A/S, PolyTech. 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.
