India has a huge wind power potential. However, hardly 4% has been harnessed for the generation of grid-quality electricity and that too by employing entirely imported wind turbines. Among the main bottlenecks to the large - scale penetration of wind power are high capital investment and suitability of the wind turbines to the Indian wind environment. Thus, the development of an indigenous, low cost, robust, technologically advanced wind turbine to enable the widespread utilization of wind power is a high priority for the Indian Wind Energy Programme. A mission-oriented and technology driven strategy of the National Aerospace Laboratories towards meeting this goal is enunciated. This includes the appropriate development of a 300kW class, downwind, stall - regulated wind turbine incorporating a two - bladed teetered rotor. A conceptual design of this wind turbine is given
