  • Wind turbine controlling of the future

    Higher, more robust, more reliable: Parallel to the growing requirements for wind turbines, the requirements for monitoring sensors grow as well. But how can wind sensor manufacturers fulfil these wishes? And how should a future wind sensors look like? After analysing the current conditions and trends on the wind energy market, our CEO Klaus Hirzel compiled a wish list for future wind sensors. ...

  • Comparative study of the performances of twisted two-bladed and three-bladed airfoil shaped H-Darrieus turbines by computational and experimental methods

    The vertical axis H-Darrieus turbines are simple in construction, self-starting, omni-directional, and self-regulating at all wind speeds. A comparative study of the performances of twisted two-bladed and three-bladed airfoil shaped H-Darrieus turbines was made. The models of the turbines were designed, fabricated, and tested in a subsonic wind tunnel. The power coefficients (C ...

  • Community Wind Power for Renewable Income

    CONSIDERING its incredible history and environmental benefits, wind power is one of the most underutilized sources of renewable energy. Stretching back as early as 200 BC, communities have been harvesting the wind for power. However, the scale and popularity of wind power is only now starting to reach critical mass as concerns of climate change rise and energy usage continues to soar. While ...

  • Influence of exogenous and endogenous factors on the exergy analysis of 3–column array wind farm

    Influence of exogenous and endogenous factors on the exergy analysis of 3 column array wind farm for two different layouts are highlighted in this paper. Nine turbines were placed in two different layouts to analyse the influence of exogenous factors such as wind velocity, wind direction, wind distribution and distance between turbines. Endogenous factors considered were diameter of rotor, hub ...

  • Oceans of Energy

    Technologies that harness the energy of moving water or temperature differentials in the oceans promise to deliver abundant carbon-free electricity. Long before humans got hooked on fossil fuels, we learned how to harness the power of water to do work. Rivers ran mills that ground flour, sawed logs or spun looms that transformed fibers into textiles. Later generations realized that moving water ...
