A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11929055B2) discloses a wind turbine design that incorporates a resonator module to mitigate vibrations. The wind turbine comprises a vibration source, a component that receives the vibration, and a resonator module that vibrates at a specific frequency to counteract the vibrations. The resonator module is strategically coupled to the component at a specific location to reflect a partial sine wave motion back to the component, effectively reducing vibrations.

The patent details various configurations and applications of the wind turbine design, including coupling the resonator module to the component using magnetic or adhesive means, utilizing connection modules for easy installation and removal, and incorporating multiple resonator modules for different resonant frequencies. Additionally, the patent covers the installation method for the resonator module, which involves identifying the component's resonant frequency, selecting the appropriate resonator module, and coupling it at the optimal location. Numerical simulations are recommended to determine the resonant frequency and coupling position accurately, ensuring effective vibration reduction in the wind turbine.
