Technology adds brains to power in wind turbines

07/22/2013 |

Size and technology are now the driving factors in wind turbine development and production. In particular, technology that produces smart turbines with embedded sensors and data processing algorithms is a "game-changer," said Douglas Adams, professor of mechanical engineering at Purdue University. "It allows the turbine to maximize the power it produces, while simultaneously ensuring the reliability of the turbine is maintained."
