Document Description
DGS proposes to construct and operate a 1.79 MW- 100 turbine. This model is a three-bladed, upwind, horizontal-axis wind turbine with a rotor radius of 165 feet (50.3 meters). The turbine rotor and nacelle are mounted on top of a tubular steel tower, giving a rotor hub height of 262 feet (80 meters), for a total structural height of up to 427 feet (130.15 meters). The machine employs yaw control (designed to steer the machine with respect to the wind direction), and can operate at variable speeds using active blade pitch control (designed to regulate turbine rotor speed). The turbine uses a doubly fed. The blade pitcher bearing is designed to allow the blade to pitch about a spanwise pitch axis. The inner race of the blade pitch bearing is outfitted with a blade drive gear that enables the blade to be driven in pitch by an electric gear-driven motor/controller.
