Micro wind turbine

imageThe Japanese company Zephyr has set a target to benefit the greatest number of natural energy source that is the wind. Z The project involved scientists in Japan leaders, economic and political. The Airdolphin is the result of this ambitious project – the latest generation micro wind turbine, which is distinct from other micro-turbines with low weight and its exceptional ability to adapt to small variations of the wind. The Airdolphin series has been designed and tested to have a high reliability in all conditions and to operate for years without maintenance.
In the segment of wind micro-turbines, there are mainly two types of turbines. Vertical turbines, also known under the name Daerrius turbine and horizontal turbines. The vertical configuration turbines have a slight advantage in terms of emissions of noise and vis-à-vis the downwind independence. The horizontal turbines are more advantageous in terms of yield.
The technologies used in the Airdolphin raise new minor inconveniences related to noise emission and vexation of spirit.
Airdolphin the blades are inspired by the wings of the owl and thus reduce the noise of the air flow.
Noise emissions are reduced relative to those comparable wind.
This effect is due to the ribs applied on the back of the blades.
The adjustable rear wing allows it to react to the slightest changes in the direction of the wind and optimize production.
The Japanese company Zephyr Corp. Airdolphin this with the most efficient micro wind turbine in its class. With a rotor diameter of 1.8 m, a weight of 17.5 kg (PRO) and / or 19.5 (GTO) and a maximum power of 2.3 kW (PRO) and / or 4 kW (GTO) it largely surpasses all other wind micro-turbines in its class.
The Airdolphin is equipped with more of the special power function. The rotor is driven for 10 seconds every minute, which allows the Airdolphin to start as soon as the wind speed of 2.5 m / s. This feature also prevents cold by the turbine gel.
With its white body and blue-green blades, the Airdolphin becomes an aesthetic object but discreet that blends into its environment. He won the “Good Design Award 2005”.
According to an extensive study based on the analysis of the life cycle standards of Japan, a wind Airdolphin offsets its manufacturing carbon footprint (180 kg CO2) in less than three months of operation to an average wind speed of 4.5 m / s.
Given the optimized further downwind of the reduced noise emission and its relation-dimensional energy production, the Airdolphin is considered a superior micro-turbine.
There are two models of Airdolphin. The model PRO is a wind turbine manufacturer self-mode. The model GTO is intended to supply the wind flow in the local network and contribute to responsible use of available energy resources.
