On pitch regulated turbines, the blades are mounted on the rotor hub with turntable

bearings. They can be turned around their longitudinal axis during operation.

In high winds, the pitch setting is continuously adjusted away from stall point to

reduce lift force and thereby actively adjust the generated power. As mentioned

in Section 3.7.2.1, the reaction time for pitching the wings is critical in order to

follow the variations in wind speed to prevent excessive peak loads. Therefore, pitch

regulation in practice requires a generator with full or partial speed, allowing a slight

acceleration in rotor speed at wind gusts. The pitch mechanism is usually operated

using hydraulics.
