Blade Pitch Control Brake

Blade Pitch Control Brake
« Back to Glossary
Large horizontal axis wind turbines pitch or angle their rotor blades for best efficiency. The rotor blades are also pitched or feathered to minimise rotation in high winds and for turbine maintenance. A blade pitch control brake serves as an braking safety feature as well as for dynamic braking in emergency pitch conditions.
