English term or phrase: tip brake
brakes of a windturbine
inge preiss
(Rotor-) Spitzenbremse
Explanation:
I do not think that "tip" has anything to do with tilting. Brakes in turbines usually prevent overspeed. Your tip brake should probably read "tip speed brake"

"Wind is unpredictable. Overspeeds apply tremendous stress to wind turbine blades and gearboxes - a powerful back-up braking system will then save the day!"
