New system uses wind turbines to defend the national grid from power cut

A ‘smart’ system that controls the storage and release of energy from wind turbines will reduce the risk of power cuts and support the increase of wind energy use world-wide, say researchers at the University of Birmingham.

The system uses the variable speed of the rotors in wind turbine systems to more closely regulate the supply of power to the grid. This means that when electricity demand is high, stored kinetic energy in the turbines can be used intelligently to keep the grid stable.  University of Birmingham Enterprise has applied for a patent to protect the system. Regulating the supply of electricity to keep pace with demand is a continual challenge. Sudden outage of  power generation, such as when a generator gets damaged, can cause a... ...
