Could Magnetic Gears Make Wind Turbines Say Goodbye to Mechanical Gearboxes? (.PDF Download)

Bad things can happen when the mechanical gearbox in a megawatt-scale wind turbine gets overstressed. An unexpected wind gust can drive turbine blades hard, so hard that the torque on the gearbox they’re connected to exceeds design parameters. The result: A multiton gearbox that must be detached...
