With blade lengths presently up to 80+ m there is a need for a supplement to the standard pitch system for control of power and loads. Distributed load control along the blade span with trailing edge flaps is a promising concept where numerical simulations have shown considerable load alleviation potential. However, the technology still has not been developed, but in the INDUFLAP project the overall goal is to transfer a trailing edge flap system tested in the laboratory to full-scale industrial application
