Vertical Axis Wind Generator

Technology Overview

The technology described herein is related to the development of a vertical axis wind turbine system suitable for applications in regions with limited power access. The wind turbine system can generate electricity at low wind speed starting from 2.5 m/s with rated speed between 8 - 10 m/s. With its unique turbine blade design, the wind turbine system are practically silent (<40dB) and operate at low revolution (40-80 rpm) while generating sufficient power (between 2.5 - 50 kW). The technology provider has developed a prototype for proof of concept and is seeking for commercialisation partners in technology licensing and manufacturing.


Technology Features & Specifications

Key features of the vertical axis wind turbine system are as follows:

  • Cut-in speed - 0.4 m/sec
  • Charging speed - from 2.5 m/sec
  • Rated speed - Between 8 to 10 m/sec
  • In-built electronic braking mechanism 
  • Compact footprint - 2 m2 required for a system which produces 50 kW power
  • Easy installation - the complete system can be installed within 48 hours


Potential Applications

The vertical wind turbine axis technology can be applied in the following areas:

  • Disaster areas
  • Urban environment
  • Industrial facilities
  • Remote areas with limited access to power

Customer Benefits

  • Easy to install
  • Ease of maintenance
