The vertical-axis solar and wind generator on magnetic levitation is the newest development of our company.
This wind turbine generator is capable to convert wind energy coming from the base air acceptor and the up-rising air flows coming from warm surface (soil and turbine base) into electrical energy using the air pressure difference.
It has no vibrations, infrasound and starts to rotate at 1.5 m/s wind speed, reaches nominal (rated/plate) power output at 10 m/s and unlike traditional turbines continues to generate more and more energy till wind speed reaches 40 m/s.
For example, 10MW turbine will generate incredible 40MW at wind speed of 15 m/s.
For sure, this figure is impressive and can make anyone rich during hurricane, but what is more important – it starts to produce electricity at very low wind speed. You will have slow, but steady energy flow starting from 2 m/s.
Imagine, that your average wind is 5 m/s (quite good, actually, just look at this map), half of the year – below 3.5 m/s. Traditional turbine will start working at 3.5 m/s and it means, that it will stay dormant half of the year.
It allows creation of wind farms in areas where it was impossible before due to too high or too low winds.
Simple, no-friction construction minimizes maintenance and repair downtime, increases life span and efficiency overall.
The invention is protected with the Ukrainian and the US patents.
