Orenda Energy Solutions’ Skye™ wind turbine has a hierarchy of systems to control the turbine as wind-speed increases, and ultimately bring the turbine to a controlled stop:
1. Electrical Load Torque Control
2. Hydrostatic Braking (patent pending)
3. Stall Regulated Blades
4. Active Yaw
5. Emergency/Parking Brake
6. Dynamic Resistive Load (Grid loss)
Wind turbine safety is of the utmost importance to Orenda, and the Skye™ wind turbine solution has been designed with safety management in mind.
