Lightning Protection - Wind Energy
Featured Product from Engineered Materials, a subsidiary of PPG Aerospace (Dexmet Corporation)
Lightning Protection - Wind Energy
As the requirement for wind turbines to produce more power, wind blade designs are becoming larger to meet these higher output demands. As they become larger,weight becomes an issue and designers are starting to incorporate more carbon fiber into the blade construction. Through the knowledge and history in carbon fiber aerospace applications, Dexmet has been called upon to help determine the correct configurations and materials for lightning protection on these hybrid carbon fiber/composite blades. Configurations are more conductive and configured to withstand multiple strikes and therefore are slightly heavier than materials required for Aerospace.
