Powertrain system created to improve wind, water turbine efficiency and environmental impact

Read the full story from Purdue University.

Purdue University engineers Jun Chen and Lizhi Shang have designed a powertrain system to improve turbines that generate wind energy and marine hydrokinetic energy. The design transmits power from the low-speed high-torque turbine to the high-speed, low-torque generator. It also uses water as the hydraulic fluid.
