Offshore wind power or offshore wind energy is the use of wind farms constructed in bodies of water, usually in the ocean, to harvest wind energy to generate electricity. Higher wind speeds are available offshore compared to on land, so offshore wind power’s electricity generation is higher per amount of capacity installed, and NIMBY opposition to construction is usually much weaker.

Wind energy has attracted much attention from research and industrial communities. One of growth areas is thought to be in the offshore wind turbine market. The ongoing effort to develop advanced wind turbine generator technologies has already led to increased production, Cited by: Abstract.

The drive train connects the energy capturing rotor of a wind turbine to the generator which produces the unit’s electrical power. Large wind turbine rotors rotate at around 20 rpm but conventional generators rotate much faster so there will often be a gearbox between the rotor and the generator to match the speed of one to the other.

Wind energy is the kinetic energy associated with movement of large masses of air. These motions result from uneven heating of atmosphere by sun creating temperature, density, pressure differences. @article{osti_, title = {Wind Turbine Technology}, author = {Spera, D A}, abstractNote = {This book reviews advances in aerodynamics, structural dynamics and fatigue, wind characteristics, acoustic and electromagnetic emissions, commercial wind power applications, and utility power systems that use wind power plants.

A wind turbine, or alternatively referred to as a wind energy converter, is a device that converts the wind's kinetic energy into electrical energy. Wind turbines are manufactured in a wide range of vertical and horizontal axis. The smallest turbines are used for applications such as battery charging for auxiliary power for boats or caravans or to power traffic warning signs.

Wind Turbine Generators One of limiting factors in wind turbines lies in their generator technology. There is no con‐ sensus among academics and industry on the best wind turbine generator technology.

Tra‐ ditionally, there are three main types of wind turbine generators (WTGs) which can be. Since the early s, the program worked with GE and its predecessors to test components such as blades, generators, and control systems on generations of turbine designs that led to GE's MW model, which has constituted approximately half of the nation's installed commercial wind energy fleet and is a major competitor in global markets.

None of the small wind turbine companies, however, were owned by large companies committed to long term market development, so when the federal tax credits expired in lateand oil prices dropped to $10 a barrel two months later, most of the small wind turbine industries once again disappeared.

Superconducting generators have the potential to provide a compact and light weight drive train at high torques and slow rotational speeds, because high magnetic fields can be produced by coils with very little loss.

Three different superconducting wind turbine generator topologies have been proposed by three different companies.
