RE570 Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine

RE570 Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine

The unit will provide interesting and instructive experimental work for all students, and will be of particular interest to those studying:

  • Renewable Energy
  • Aerodynamics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Energy Conservation
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Fluid Mechanics

An optional computerised data acquisition upgrade REC570A is available to enable all relevant system parameters to be automatically recorded on a PC for further analysis and display.

Data may also be transferred to spreadsheet format for complex analysis and calculation. This upgrade can be factory fitted prior to delivery or supplied later as a user installed upgrade.

RE570 Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine

A horizontal axis three phase to dc wind driven power generator with instrumentation console recording turbine speed, power output and adjustable load.

An optional mast is available for controlled testing.

An optional computerised data acquisition upgrade is available that allows all relevant system parameters to be automatically recorded on a PC.

 The unit is supplied with a detailed experimental operating and maintenance manual giving example experimental results and sample calculations.

Accessories and spares for two years normal operation together with a full two year warranty are also included as standard.

 

  • Measurement of wind speed turbine speed and power generation relationship.
  • Measurement of air velocity before and after the turbine.
  • Calculation of theoretical power.
