The platform is able to be expanded and developed to a series of wind turbine generators with capacity ranging from 5.0MW to 7.0 MW. This wind turbine prototype features a two-blade design with a light weight permanent magnet generator. Ming Yang is also planning to develop a three-blade SCD wind turbine model, specialising in catching low speed wind.
