Reducing the cost of constructing wind turbines, as well as extending their design life, are two ways of reducing the cost of energy from wind. To achieve this, this project tested two innovative tuned-mass damper systems, which reduce resonance of the tower, and do so minimizing additional mass needed on the nacelle. These TMD systems allow the...
