WIND INNOVATION.: by Bruce Mulliken, Green Energy News This you surely know: Some people don't like wind energy....

“Multi-megawatt generators are manufactured using low-volume production methods. These methods are dependent on highly skilled labor and introduce a concern that build quality will depend on the skill of the craftsperson performing the task. The BWP stator, by contrast, is manufactured using mature and repeatable printed circuit board (PCB) operations. Perfected by the proliferation of computer technology, PCB manufacturing is ubiquitous, robust and cost effective. Our engineers, using proprietary design tools developed by BWP, prescribe the circuit to be etched on the PCB. This formula is electronically transferred to the PCB manufacturer and the PCBs are etched or “printed,” stacked, pressed, drilled, and plated. This automated manufacturing simplicity is unique to BWP for wind turbine applications and it leverages the low cost, high quality, globally installed PCB produ...
