Lawrence H Howes, Amir S Mikhail, Geoff F Deane: Method of controlling electrical rotating machines connected to a common shaft. Clipper Windpower Technology, Owen L Lamb, February 21, 2006: US07002259 (20 worldwide citation)

A controller for high torque, low RPM wind turbines and ocean current turbines. The turbine consists of a large, input power shaft-mounted, rotating bull-gear with stationary powertrains mounted around its periphery. The gear teeth on the bull-gear rotate past the teeth on pinions, causing the pinio ...
