furling tail, definition of
- Furling Tail
A wind generator protection mechanism where the rotor
shaft axis is offset horizontally from the yaw axis, and the tail boom
is both offset horizontally and hinged diagonally, thus allowing the
tail to fold up and in during high winds. This causes the
blades to turn out of the wind, protecting the machine.
