Wind power generation in the U.S. has enjoyed favorable winds in recent years. A repowered wind farm not only extends the life of the facility but leverages rising capacity factors found with modern technology with more efficient power generation.
Not all existing wind farm owners have the ability, however, to complete a full or partial repowering. Instead, these owners are pursuing a more incremental approach to improving the reliability and capacity factor of their wind turbines.
This paper takes a closer look at these alternate approaches, particularly the use of turbine blade pitch control valves, a critical factor in turbine reliability.
