Using torque for turbines

    Torque vectoring gears for wind turbines eliminate the need for the twofold conversion process required before the current is fed into the grid.
    The process of converting the current produced by the turbines into an alternating current of the right frequency results in a loss of almost five percent. To prevent this loss, I suggest developing an active torque-vectoring gear that can operate at exactly 1500 revolutions per minute regardless of the rotational speed of the motor. This will do away with the need for rectifiers to convert the current for the grid and allow for the production of smaller turbines.
