New Test Facility to improve wind turbines

06th January 2014  To: 06th January 2014

A 5 MW Dynamometer Test Facility has been added by NREL at its National Wind Technology Center, dramatically expanding capability of engineers and their industry partners to verify performance and reliability of wind turbine drivetrain prototypes and commercial machines. Facility is capable of testing drivetrains up to 5 MW and employs dynamically variable loading capabilities that will allow researchers to better simulate conditions turbine might experience in the field.
