The WTS is robust and versatile designed for a variety of applications to optimize benefits on your investment. It can be used to demonstrate several concepts and perform different experiments related to electric power generation from wind energy. The system gives a hands on experience to students and can be integrated with a standard curriculum. It comes with a training book to assist with exercises and learning. Sensors for wind speed and direction are provided so that the nacelle yaw and the pitch angles of each blade can be altered to optimize the power. The unit can be operated with and without wind. The unit is equipped to install several dc generators and the power produced by them can be combined. An inverter is used to generate AC power. WTS is also a perfect tool for assembly and maintenance procedures in a controlled environment.

  • A perfect platform for teaching the fundamental principles - from power generation to operation & maintenance
  • An Ideal Apparatus for Wind Turbine reliability studies
