Rotor diameters have increased significantly as turbine technology has developed, allowing greater energy capture at a range of wind speeds and being a key enabler of increasing capacity factors. At the same time, turbine generators have increased in capacity allowing greater power outputs at higher wind speeds. A key challenge is how rotor diameters can be optimised to turbines with increasing megawatt (MW) rating.
