Book Description :

This practical book deals with the technology of small-power wind turbines as opposed to widely diffused industrial wind turbines and wind farms. It covers the most common wind turbine technologies in the small power segment: horizontal axis both for electrical generation and water pumping, vertical axis of the Darrieus type, and vertical axis of the Savonius type. With each chapter following the same didactic scheme—a theoretical explanation and practical examples showing calculation procedures—it allows anybody with basic technical knowledge to design and build a small wind turbine for any site. A set of simple spreadsheets is available for download, each providing further examples of how to solve specific design problems and allowing the reader to play with changing parameters and see what-if. This simple trial-and-error learning process allows beginners to develop the feeling of the orders of magnitude involved in the design of a small wind power system, its potential advantages on other alternative solutions, and its limitations under some special circumstances.

Book Description :

Commercially available small wind conversion systems (SWECS), DOE-funded prototype SWECS, and possible second generation advanced concepts are assessed from the standpoint of several key Figures-of-Merit including cost of energy, dollars per pound, kilowatt hours per year per pound, and kilowatt hours per year per square meter of rotor area. The reliability, performance, and installation and maintenance costs of these systems are also assessed. It is concluded that current SWECS, while nearing the threshold of competitiveness with conventional energy sources, are inhibited from reaching their lowest cost potential by the use of off-the-shelf components, less than optimum rotor designs, and (in some cases) overly complicated control systems. The comparison of improved DOE prototypes and possible advanced concept SWECS shows that, in many size ranges, considerable reductions in energy cost can be achieved

Book Description :

This investigation shows the attempt to improve the electrodynamomoter designed by Mr. Villey. The force to be measured acts on a flexible steel plate which is placed in front of a fixed plate. The deformation varies the original thickness of the layer of air between the two plates, thus causing a more rapid variation in the coefficient of electrostatic attraction of the two plates than in the capacity of the condenser formed by the dynamometer. The measurements are made by a differential method. The capacity of the test dynamometer is compared with that of a similar instrument of constant capacity, this comparison being made by means of an electrometer. Diagrams are shown of the dynamometer, the electrometer, and the electrical connections.

Book Description :

In this study the emphasis is placed on renewable energy sources with reference to the energy derived from the wind. The advantages and disadvantages of wind energy exploitation are presented here. In order to exploit the energy from the wind, wind power plants are required which consist of one or more wind turbines to produce energy. The district of Bjelovar-Bilogora Country was explored for the purposes of selecting the best location for a small wind power plant project. The AHP - Analytic Hierarchy Process - method was used to select the best location for the installation of the small wind power plant. It is based on a mathematical model and is used in choosing among multiple alternatives and delivers flexibility in decision making. The risks that may occur during the construction of the small wind power plant are also presented. There are many of them, as in every project, but they must be taken very seriously in order to complete the project successfully.

Book Description :

Most small wind turbines furl (yaw or tilt out of the wind) as a means of limiting power and rotor speeds in high winds. The Small Wind Research Turbine (SWRT) testing project was initiated in 2003 with the goal of better characterizing both small wind turbine loads (including thrust) and dynamic behavior, specifically as they relate to furling. The main purpose of the testing was to produce high-quality data sets for model development and validation and to help the wind industry further their understanding of small wind turbine behavior. Testing was conducted on a modified Bergey Excel 10-kW wind turbine. A special shaft sensor was designed to measure shaft loads including thrust, torque, and shaft bending. Analysis of 10-minute mean data showed a strong correlation between furling and center of thrust location, as calculated from the shaft-bending and thrust measurements. Data were collected for three different turbine configurations that included a change in the lateral furling offset and the blades. An analysis of inflow conditions indicated that organized atmospheric turbulence had some impact on furling.
