Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) Power

We have designed a bespoke All-in-One DART-8 unit that offers the Option to install a 3kW (VAWT) Wind Turbine above the Solar racking, the VAWT simply increase the Power Generated, especially between Solar Sunset & Sunrise or during extended Bad weather when Solar generation is diminished & Wind is usually abundant.

In Australia, it's said on average a Wind Turbine will generate approx. 2'000 hours Power per year (3kW x 2000 =6'000kWh Energy), obviously a lot more Power would be Generated in Windy locations!

The Vertical Axis Wind Turbines below come with AC Power output, Core-less Permanent Magnet, Direct Drive Turbines.

Wind Turbines commonly require a Charge Controller and a Dump Load, a dump load is nothing more than a resistor (heating element) that is used for dumping Power being generated when either Batteries or Premises is not Consuming any Energy, as a Dump simply Wastes the energy and stops overcharging. A Dump-Load could be wired to a Water Heater, Air Heater, Water Pump or some other resistive load, then that Power would Not be Wasted.

There are compromises between Vertical Axis Wind Turbines (VAWT) and Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWT), the main advantage a VAWT require less maintenance as Bearings are all on one axis.

While VAWT have fewer components that can wear and require repair, the forces acting on a VAWT are less turbulent than those acting on a HAWT, as a HAWT charges rotational direction to pointed directly at the wind, the blades and the whole Turbine is pitched back & forth and thus loads the bearings unevenly on a HAWT.

Frequently asked questions:

1) What kind of places are good to install this type of wind turbine ?
The ideal site to install should have consistent high average wind speeds and minimal turbulence.
The higher the average wind speed, the higher the generated power and greater total output of electricity.
(For example, a wind speed of 5 m/s can generate nearly twice the electricity than a wind speed of 4 m/s.)

2) Does the wind turbine need routine maintenance after installation ?
Vertical axis wind turbines have been designed to provide you with reliable, free and clean energy for many years.
Even though these wind turbines are made to be maintenance-free, regular check-ups, and monitoring the general condition of the system, will ensure electrical and mechanical integrity of the system.

For optimum Generation 6mt Clearance of Buildings, Trees & Terrain, is an ideal height to set a wind turbine.

Coastal winds commonly blow in from the Ocean, unless the Land is Colder than the Ocean Temperature, so for optimum performance install your wind turbine so that it's on the leading side of obstacles.   Due to wind turbulence over hills & Ridges, the optimal Turbine height is approx. 6mt heigh, in laminate air.

You can install an OFF-Grid Inverter, if you intend to Export Excess Power into the State Grid.

Below are smaller Hobby Type Vertical Axis Wind Turbines.

In general terms Low mounted Wind Turbines should have more Blades, as that increases the Torque on the Turbine thus providing easier generation even in Low Wind conditions.
