Variable speed drives promote a revolution in wind power

Product News

ABB has helped wind power generation experts quietrevolution ltd to develop an innovative wind turbine to capture wind power in areas never before exploited.

Architects, developers and local councils are showing strong interest in the company's QR5, a vertical axis wind turbine designed to operate in urban areas, where wind speeds are lower and wind directions change frequently. Its helical design ensures it is robust and able to deal with even turbulent winds.

The wind turbine turns an ABB permanent magnet motor which is linked to an ABB industrial drive acting in regenerative mode to provide the energy conversion and regenerate power back into the grid.
