Research Outline

Reducing the consumption of fossil fuels is required. As an alternative energy, utilizing renewable energy such as wind, solar, biomass is promoted. Wind energy from wind turbines is widely used around the world. In recent times, wind energy has been used as a local power, such as urban and residential street lights. So, safe and high efficient small wind turbine is needed. My main subject is on the research and development of low noise compact, high-power wind turbine.
