EcoSwing

The aim of the EcoSwing project is to design and test the world's first superconductive and truly cost-saving generator for operation in a modern multi-megawatt turbine. The 40% reduction in weight compared to a standard, permanently excited synchronous generator makes it possible to achieve significant savings of 25% in the tower head mass.

LENAH

The aim of LENAH is a lifespan extension and lightweight construction optimisation thanks to nanomodified and hybrid material systems in rotor blades. New nanoparticle-modified plastics are being developed in order to improve further the robustness of rotor blades. Furthermore Hybrid laminates are being tested for their suitability for rotor blades.

Smart Wind Farms

Smart Wind Farms is aiming to develop a comprehensive software tool for an a priori optimisation of wind farms during the design phase. The second aspect of the project covers the development and testing of a control unit prototype for a wind farm, which uses models to keep energy production costs as low as possible whilst the farm is in operation.
