The future of affordable, renewable residential energy is wind. Youíll be amazed by the wind power you can harness with wind generators and turbines. Wind is the future of tomorrow!
With 400 Watts of power
at 28 mph winds, the powering possibilites are endless!
The Primus Windpower Air 30 builds upon what has made AIR the world's #1 selling small wind turbine. The new technology used in the Primus Windpower Air 30 was only previously found in mega-watt-class wind turbines.
The Primus Windpower Air 30 is an ideal product for the person that needs a little power for basic appliances such as TV, radio and a few lights.
Our customers found this item to be most useful for applications such as alternate power for remote cabins, remote monitoring stations, telecommunication towers, and many more applications. The alternate power applications are endless.
The Primus Windpower Air 30 uses a new microprocessor based technology that results in an increase in performance, battery charging capability, and reliability. Additionally, "flutter" noise from the machine has been reduced.
The controller allows for peak-power tracking of the wind by optimizing the alternator's output on all points of the cubic curve and efficiently delivers the energy to the battery. The turbine's smart controller allows it to actually control blade rotation speed thus eliminating the buzzing noise commonly found with most small wind turbines.
Much Lower Noise:
Previous AIR wind modules relied on their aero-elastic blade design for protection in high winds. This caused a loud flutter noise in winds above 35 mph (16 m/s). Air 30ís circuit monitors the wind speed and electronically slows the blades as it reaches its rated output preventing it from going into flutter. This results in a much quieter wind turbine. In high winds, the Primus Windpower Air 30 will continue to produce power at a reduced level until the wind decreases, at which point maximum potential output will resume.
Improved Battery Charging:
Previous AIR designs required 300-400 amp hour battery banks so the trickle charge of the wind turbine could be adequately absorbed. The AIR 30ís charge controller periodically stops charging, reads the battery voltage, compares it to the voltage setting and if the battery is charged, it completely shuts off all current going to the battery. This function is performed within a few milliseconds. The closer the battery is to reaching its full state of charge, the more often the AIR 30ís circuit repeats this action. This means any size battery bank from 25 to 25,000 amp hours or higher can be charged safely. When the battery has reached its charged state, the Primus Windpower Air 30 will slow to an almost complete stop. Only when the battery has dropped below its voltage set point will it startup and resume charging.
Lower stress design:
Primus Windpower Air 30 limits power on the input side of the electronics by controlling the torque from the blades. The power no longer has to be dissipated by the electronics resulting in lower stress on the circuit, bearings and other materials. Furthermore, stress on wind turbines occurs primarily in high winds. Under these conditions, the electronic stall design reduces the blade speed to 600 rpm, thereby significantly reducing turbine and tower loading while still producing power. The Benefit: Greater confidence in turbine operation in high wind conditions without manually operating the stop switch. Improved resistance to the effects of the sun, wind and water: Primus Windpower Air 30 marine has vastly improved body preparation and applications of the marine paint during manufacture, ensuring durable powdercoat protection of the body and internal components, even when subjected to the most extreme sun, wind and water conditions.
