Variable Pitch. Technology patented by and exclusive to Windspot
- It is a passive mechanism that uses the centrifugal force produced by the turning of the small wind turbine to change the attack angle of the blades, which adjust themselves in a synchronized movement, cushioned by a hydraulic cylinder, to the strength of the wind.
- Variable pitch provides higher productivity and reliability. Thanks to variable pitch, an excess of revolutions is avoided that would damage the generator and means that Windspot small wind turbine continues working at maximum performance even with high wind speeds.
- To protect themselves from the strongest winds, other turbines activate protection systems that, paradoxically, slow up their production when the conditions to produce energy are at their best.
