  • How much wind is needed to power a home turbine?

    First do you have what it takes? Whether you are considering a small rooftop unit or a large residential turbine you need to know how much wind power is in your area. Wind resource maps, published by the US Department of Energy show airflow speeds at 50 meters (150 feet) above the ground and are a great resource in deciding if you are in a viable location. That's great if you are installing a ...

  • Ishibashi tests wind gearboxes with PULSE

    Japan’s largest wind turbine gearbox manufacturer Ishibashi faces a familiar challenge in manufacturing wind turbine gearboxes - ensuring the reliability and longevity that is critical to their customer’s return on investment. At the core of Ishibashi’s testing procedure is Brüel & Kjær’s PULSE analyzer and - following the acquisition of their first system ...

  • Optimal Power Flow under Variable Wind Generation

    In this paper Optimal Power Flow (OPF) problem is solved for a power system, which includes wind power as an additional generation input under variable load conditions. The fixed-speed Wind Turbine Generator (WTG) option is considered in this study: simulations have been performed for various sizes of wind farm attached to the IEEE 30-bus systems using the DIgSILENT Power Factory simulation ...

  • China Wind Power 2010 - an enlightening exhibition

    China Wind Power is the largest wind energy event in Asia, where some 500 exhibitors displayed their products this October – a 25% increase on 2009. The event was hosted by the major organisations in the wind energy industry in China: Global Wind Energy Council (GWEC) China Renewable Energy Industries Association (CREIA) Chinese Wind Energy Association (CWEA) ...

  • Wind Energy Production Estimates: Moving Beyond Time Averages

    No need to be a statistician to see that averages are often useful to compare different things. And yet, they often fall short as a true measure of performance. For instance, we use averages to compare the current weather against the climate normals or to get a sense of how our favorite sport team or player is doing. Team (player) statistics are a concise way of combining the scores from many ...

  • 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 ...

  • Benchmarking platforms: why more knowledge means more leverage

    Greater plant owner demand for high speed computing and benchmarking data analysis platforms will cause rapid development of power upgrade packages and create a basis for further OEM innovation. High speed computing is making a major difference in wind data analysis. Today, major advances in time series and spatial analysis as well as the wake models used to estimate losses are possible because ...

  • Rising offshore plant capacities lead to greater data-based O&M gains

    The growing size of offshore wind farms provides greater scope for data optimisation during Operations and Maintenance, while software solutions can also help mitigate risk during the development phase, Marcus Ihle, Senior Consultant at Outsmart, said. Further gains could be made if operators share more data from their growing databases with other plant owners, Ihle said. The ...

  • Hydropower installation

    DSEP100 Mains Decoupling Relays for hydropower projects in remote locations in the Cumbrian Lake District, UK.  Old decommissioned water wheels in Ambleside, Blencathra and Langdale have been recently refurbished and brought back into use as sophisticated hydropower turbines which are now working in parallel with the grid, ...
