Small Wind Turbines For Electricity And Irrigation- for free

Wind Turbines

Small wind turbines, along with anaerobic digesters and thermal solar systems, are the most democratic of all renewable energy sources. This is because any one can build a wind turbine, digester, or thermal solar collector, even from scrap, without resorting to advanced technology or exotic materials. Of these three energy sources, small wind power installations provide the highest quality thermodynamic energy, mechanical work. Small wind power systems are one of the three pillars for a sustainable society based on a circular economy.

At the end of the 1980s, despite the Chernobyl nuclear accident and the growing awareness of the negative environmental impact of fossil fuels, many in the so-called developed societies believed that small stand-alone energy systems were only suitable for remote rural areas where pulling the wires would not pay off in a standard financial analysis, and They thought. Over the past few decades, politicians, businessmen, and economists have often criticized and even opposed small-scale initiatives for house hold and community energy independence.

About the Book

The chapters in this book ( Small wind turbines ) are organized in a minimal but as rigorous a manner as possible: theoretical explanations and practical examples illustrating the computational procedures. Simple spread sheets are available for download, each providing further examples of how to solve a particular design problem.

The reader is encouraged to modify the parameters and to look at the “what if…?”play” with them, and see what happens. This simple trial-and-error learning process allows the novice to develop an order-of-magnitude sense of what is involved in designing a small wind turbine system. And ultimately, they can also learn about its limitations under special circumstances.

The book covers the most common wind turbine technologies in the small power sector, including horizontal axis types for power generation and pumping, Darius-type vertical axis types, and Savonius- type vertical axis types. Chapter 11 collects “alternative “or” un conventional “wind turbine technologies that have not reached maturity and briefly describes their logical flaws and practical limitations.

Finally, Chapter 12 is a compendium of tables, formulas, and aerodynamic data on aero dynamics for air foils, streamlines, and blunt bodies, especially at the low Reynolds numbers most common in the small power sector.
