15. "...the design totally eliminates transmissions..."

 

....wouldn't you still need a transmission to step up the blades' rpm for generator? If not, wouldn't the generator grow in size in order to be able to produce power at low blade rpm?

....I can see by switching the generators' coils/load to track the blade output more efficiently could reduce the transmission load at low and intermediate rpm, but wouldn't you still need a transmission?
