Wind research project

  • Updated: November 5, 2011 - 10:13 PM

Several wind energy research projects are underway involving the University of Minnesota and consortium partners including 3M, Barr Engineering, Clipper Windpower and WindLogics.

Several wind energy research projects are underway involving the University of Minnesota and consortium partners including 3M, Barr Engineering, Clipper Windpower and WindLogics. Here are some of them:

More energy: Research into streamlining turbine blade airflow using various technologies.

Wind farm design: Studies of how to best orient multiple turbines to maximize power.

Radar: Researching radar interference so wind farms can be distinguished from aircraft and storm fronts.

Noise: Studying the cause and making airflow adjustments on blades to reduce or eliminate noise.
