Spoiling Wind Turbine Yaw Control

Simply fit one turbine blade with the light-weight, reliable, inexpensive, and fast-acting spoiler of your choice. Now if the spoiler is deployed at 2 o’clock and retracted at 4, the turbine will yaw in one direction. If the spoiler is deployed at 8 o’clock and retracted at 10, the turbine will yaw in the opposite direction. That’s all there is to it!
