Description

Refreshments available from 6pm, Lecture will start at 6.30pm

Speaker: Brian Taylor, Technical Director, Storelectric

The lecture gives an overview of the developments in wind turbine technology including the increase in size, power and reliability.

These advances have resulted from field experience data highlighting design problems with bearings and gearboxes plus power transmission to shore cost saving improvements.

Lecture also covers HVDC generators and developments related to offshore deep water floating wind turbine design developments to address the limited near shore wind farm locations.
