  • MPEI scientists have created a new type of transmission for wind farms


The principle of operation of the device is based not on the usual transformation of the rotation speed by mechanical means, but on the force interaction of magnetic fields. Due to this, the transformation of movement occurs completely contactless – according to the institute.
