New Energy Update: Multi-Turbine Yaw Control Platforms Set to Cut Wake Losses

In a joint research project, NREL, NextEra Energy and venture capital firm Ystrategies are currently testing new control strategies for the yaw systems which orientate turbine rotors towards the wind. Coordinated yaw adjustments on upstream turbines can steer low-energy wind away from downstream units while tactical output reductions can support grid reliability. I'm happy to be a Science and Technology Advisory Board Member of YStrategies. Read the Full Article Here.
