I must say I have learned many things as I read. One thing I might add is that for years now I have been working to understand large wind turbines. For the last 50 years regular motors were used and are still working. There must be power conditioning banks to make up for losses in varying wind speeds. Today this is out dated compared to the 99% efficent inverters out therre.
Just down the road from me in Kansas there are a bank of large turbines rated at 600 KWH each. 300 of them. When the wind is not blowing the motor turns these turbines anyway. This methode is used for producing hugh amounts of three phase electrical power without high priced syncronizing devices. Power correction factor and equiptment is what is needed instead, to use three phase motors.
Varying wind speed has always complicated things so turbines have airfoils that adjust in some form or another to compensate for large RPM swings.
This was the first methode used because of its cost effectiveness. PM motors and wound rotor are far more controllable though more expensive than simple motors.
Electrolysis could make using simple motors generating power look more attractive again.
Until next time I bid you farewell
