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
  • Fully integrated system with blade pitch and yaw control, Sensors, Data Acquisition and Analysis Software
  • Planetary and parallel shaft gearbox, wind speed/direction sensors, monitoring/control console, and power measurement system
  • Advanced Signal Processing Algorithms
  • Robust, modular, and easy to configure for a variety of experimentation
  • Can be operated with and without wind such as laboratory settings
  • Complete system consisting of a nacelle, turbine hub, three independently actuated blades, a vertical tower, wind speed/direction sensors, and a control console the power.
