The key role of energy storage backup power for wind-turbine pitch control

By Michelle Froese Editor’s note: This article comes MaxPower Weekly, a blog from Maxwell Technologies. It is authored by Ralph Heick, Key Account Manager, EMEA.
Wind turbines are strong, durable machines, but they are susceptible to damage by the wind they manage to harness into energy.
To help protect the wind turbine from damage during excessive wind speeds or during a grid power loss, wind turbines are built with emergency pitch control systems. The pitch system is responsible for shifting the turbine’s blades out of the wind and thereby slowing down the rotor to stop the turbine from spinning out of control.
Wind technicians must go
