Vawt Definition and 3 Discussions

Hi-VAWT is a renewable energy solutions provider headquartered in Linkou District, New Taipei City, Taiwan. Hi-VAWT has installations in many countries/territories worldwide (Taiwan, China, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, India, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Spain, Austria, Czech Republic, Italy, Germany, Poland, Guam, Hawaii, the USA, Jamaica and Canada), and on every continent including Antarctica. The company also a member of Taiwan Wind Turbine Industry Association.Hi-VAWT's turbines utilize a combined Darrieus and Savonius wind turbine. Savonius turbine is a drag-type wind turbine that perform well under low-wind speed condition, while Darrieus turbine is a lift-type wind turbine that perform best at high-wind speed condition. The vertical axis allowing the turbine to take wind from all directions simultaneously. While the combo-blades provide a self-starting performance while maintain a good working condition in higher wind speed situation.

    How to calculate the torque for a vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT)

    For my senior design project we are designing a vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) and trying to increase efficiency by adding flexible parts to the blades. We are currently in the process of ordering a motor/generator where we can test our new model against the same model but with standard...

    Dimensioning a generator

    Hi! I'm working on a project where we are building a windturbine from the bottom up. Myself and a colleague are designing a double stator axial flux generator for our turbine. Our requirements are that we deliver about 10 W at nominal rotation speed. It's a direct axis driven generator...

    Understanding the relationship between vawt and pma

    Hello to all, new member here, stand back! I've built a few prototype vertical axis wind turbines and have been on a major learning curve trying to find the best pma( permanent magnet alternator) to match my mill. At first the reasoning seemed simple. Find a pma and adapt the mill to drive it at...
