A micro-wind turbine is a power plant that uses wind energy to produce electricity on a small scale. This electricity can be used to power isolated sites or be returned to a public distribution network.
Its operating principle consists in transforming the kinetic energy of the wind into electrical energy thanks to a permanent magnet alternator,
The electric power produced depends on the speed of the wind. This one is simulated on the bench by an electric motor.
- A permanent magnet alternator (neodymium / iron / boron) specific for wind turbine applications.
- A geared motor with electric motor. The geared motor is encapsulated in a box to limit noise
- A chassis made of stainless steel tubes welded and mounted on wheels.
- An IP55 electrical cabinet containing the electronic components:
The central unit can be used in mode :
Direct use and battery charging : the energy produced can be used directly on the user socket or to charge a battery (not included)
Network coupling :
Direct coupling : The coupling of the generator on the distribution network is done if it is pushed beyond its synchronization speed. It provides energy that is only injected into the network.
Coupling via an inverter :
The generator can be coupled to the grid via an inverter.
The energy produced is injected into the network and can be used on a user socket.
