Flow sensor for wind turbine blades

Jennifer Spencer

Wind turbines are perfect fatigue machines. Especially as they are becoming larger and integrating longer blades. A study presented last year has shown that up to 91% of blades present a poor blade angle adjustment. This results in higher loading and worse efficiency. Including a flow sensor enables more precise wind turbine control to optimally react to changing wind conditions to allow a longer lifespan of turbines. So far, we have created a first prototype of a sensor to guide the optimal aerodynamic setting of a turbine blade. We also have a patent application pending.

Looking for

Now we are looking to apply for Research to Business funding from Business Finland to continue with prototype development. Half of the funding is to be dedicated to commercial development of the idea. We would need a person interested in the energy sector with a background in commercial/business activities.
