A dynamically reconfigurable wind turbine blade assembly includes a plurality of reconfigurable blades mounted on a hub, an actuator fixed to each of the blades and adapted to effect the reconfiguration thereof, and an actuator power regulator for regulating electrical power supplied to the actuators. A control computer accepts signals indicative of current wind conditions and blade configuration, and sends commands to the actuator power regulator. Sensors measure current wind conditions and current configurations and speed of the blades. An electrical g...
1. A reconfigurable wind turbine blade assembly comprising:a plurality of blades mounted on a hub;an actuator including a first set of actuator wires embedded in each of said blades extending parallel to each other and at an angle transverse and of about 20°-70° configured diagonally to a lengthwise centerline of said blade with said actuator adapted to effect the reconfiguration of each of said blades by an actuated twisting action;an actuator power regulator joined to said actuator for regulating electrical power supplied to said actuator;a c...
