Wind resource assessment offshore provides more background but other technological innovations that may be deployed in future offshore turbines include:

  • Two-bladed rotors
  • Downwind rotors
  • More closely-integrated drive-trains
  • Multi-pole permanent magnet generators
  • High temperature superconductors (in generators)
  • High voltage output converters (eliminating the need for turbine transformers)
