The University of Minnesota is performing research on the application of continuously variable hydrostatic transmissions for wind turbines. By replacing the gearbox of traditional wind turbines with a continuously variable hydrostatic transmission (HST) more efficient turbine operation could be achieved without the use of unreliable gearbox and power electronics.
