Our control work focuses on the relationship between blade shape and aerodynamic response (performance). We are using machine learning to explore the performance space and to achieve talk time control.
We are looking for collaborators with expertise in flexible materials and topology optimization to design and construct the blade based on our performance needs.
3D-Printed Modular Wind Turbine Blade
Atrevida Science is designing wind turbine blades that are truly amazing and unique. We present a next-generation blade design that provides tremendous benefits for small wind turbines. Our blade design utilizes additive manufacturing which enables the integration of complex structural features. The technology is being advanced to create adaptive structures. An example of this is a an active morphing blade™ Atrevida Science is developing.
