The turbine can
be folded down into its structure to make it safe for storage and
travelling. It can generate up to 600W @ 10 m/s. The turbine blades
are slightly concave to allow it to shut down during very high wind
speeds. The turbine generates 3 phase A/C electricity which is passed
through the grey box and changed into D/C to be stored in the battery.
Solar Photovoltaic Cells
There are 4 PV
collectors on the roof of the unit producing 85 W/p each. The cells
are Mono-Crystalline with an efficiency value of at least 15%. The
cells are also equipped to deal with shading, a feature which isn’t
normally available with Mono-Crystalline panels. The electricity
by these is D/C and can be fed straight into the battery.
Biomass wood pellet
The stove is
remote controlled and equipped with a thermostat. It can generate
up to 5kW of heat. It is manually fed with wood pellets.
store D/C electricity. They have a storage value of 880 amps @ 20
hours and 1000 @ 100 hours. It has a total storage capacity of 12,000
kWh. The batteries themselves are Gel valve regulated lead acid, which
means in short that they are very low maintenance.
The weather station
has a digital display which shows wind speed and direction, temperature
produces A/C electricity for lighting and various plug outlets. It
can produce up to 800W or 1200 for half and hour maximum.
Big grey box
produced by the wind turbine is passed through this box and changed
into D/C electricity. The box also has a dump load which means that
if too much electricity is generated it can be dumped as heat through
vents at the side.
Computer and Video/DVD
will act as a visual tool for enquirers and will monitor all the
systems on the unit. Groups
will be shown informative videos on various subjects.
