Danotek, a developer and manufacturer of permanent magnet (PM) generators and power-converter systems for the wind energy market, says a major wind turbine manufacturer has begun the initial operation of Danotek's up-tower PM generators in Minnesota.

The initial operation of the PM generators is a prelude to a comprehensive field test procedure that will continue into early 2012. After the generators pass the three- to four-month up-tower test program, work on delivering an initial volume of PM generators is expected to commence.

The installation and testing of Danotek's PM generators is being conducted in conjunction with the Eolos Wind Research Project, a wind research consortium formed by the University of Minnesota, the Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of Maine to support wind energy technology research, development and career education focused on increasing wind turbine performance and reliability, and helping to train the next generation of wind power engineers.
