History of windmill and wind turbine control - Variable ...

Wind turbine control has a long history which was probably initiated by the regulation of the rotational speed of the Persian windmills in the tenth century A.D using a series of shutters. Another early example of a windmill regulation device is the mill-hopper which was used to regulate the flow of grain in a mill depending on the speed of rotation of the millstone by about 1588.
