A software “detective” for wind power generation

Advanced detection of wind anomalies could help prolong the lifespan of wind turbine components and reduce the cost of wind energy generation. In this context, European researchers have developed smart control software Europeans have been using the wind to generate energy for centuries. Even early wind mills were very cleverly designed cybernetic tools. And, the … Read moreA software “detective” for wind power generation
