Researchers say wind turbines could protect national grids from power cuts

OFFSHOREWIND | Researchers at the University of Birmingham are developing a ‘smart’ system that uses wind turbines to defend a national grid from power cuts.

The system that controls the storage and release of energy from wind turbines will reduce the risk of power cuts and support the increase of wind energy use worldwide, said the researchers.

The system uses the variable speed of the rotors in wind turbine systems to more closely regulate the supply of power to the grid.
