OVERVIEW

Design

characteristics

Blades Single piece glass fibre blade maximises strength and minimises connection interfaces, limiting points of potential failure.
1
Swept Area
Superior performance in moderate wind speeds due to the large swept area of 133 m2 maximises power output. 2
Generator
Induction generator produces 3 phase, sinusoidal output without the need for power electronics, simplifying the control system and increasing the reliability of the system.
3
Gearbox
Fixed ratio gearbox with a constant rotor speed ensures a low-level noise profile is maintained even during high wind speeds.
6
Controller & Monitoring
Remote monitoring allows service engineers to assess the status and health of the wind turbine ensuring the system is operating at peak performance at all times.
7
Work Basket
Built in work basket and ladder allow servicing and maintenance to be performed easily and safely, at a reduced cost, without the need for specialist lifting equipment.
5
Anemometer Wind speed sensor accurately tracks the behaviour of the wind in real time, in order to improve the turbine’s performance and safety.

Reliability & Safety

SAFETY

  • Base Level: Passive stall of blades limits power output
  • Second Level: Electronic control system activates mechanical brake.
  • Third Level: Passive centrifugally activated aerodynamic brakes, concealed in the rotor tips, release, spoiling the rotor aerodynamics and subsequently its ability to rotate.

DATA INPUT & MANAGEMENT

  • Integrated microprocessor with multiple sensor inputs: wind speed, power, voltages, currents and phase, rpm, vibration and temperature alerts.
  • LCD display in control box. Can output to local PC or be monitored remotely via the internet
  • Remote Monitoring: Allows remote monitoring of the wind turbine in order for Ryse to ensure the turbine is operating at its peak performance.

CONSTRUCTION & MAINTENANCE

  • Limited plant requirement for installation.
  • The bottom of the tower is bolted onto a reinforced concrete base with dimensions 5.2 x 5.2 x 0.6 m. This is set in a 1 m deep hole with a 0.4 m layer of hard-packed earth on top.
