Welcome... the homepage of INNOWIND Forschungsgesellschaft mbH headed by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Friedrich Klinger at Saarland University of Applied Sciences.

INNOWIND was founded in 1990 by Prof. Dr. Friedrich Klinger. The company developed the technology of direct drive wind turbines with permanent magnet excitation and prototypes have been realized for several customers (Genesys, Vensys, Goldwind, NU).

The current projects include the design of multi-pole generators with external rotors, with a focus on the cooling system, bearing, transportation, mounting and the manufacturing process for serial production. Another aim is to simplify components like the yaw and pitch control, the brakes, the converter and the control system in order to create low-maintenance robust and lightweight turbines with high energy output.
