Wind power augmented with Bernoulli effect - Odin Energy

567 views

Published on

Odin Energy is a clean technology startup that wants to make renewable energy more practical.

Odin Tower takes advantage of Bernoulli effect to generate more power from the same winds than existing small wind systems do.

Odin Tower can be a great solution for mini and micro grids.

Wind power augmented with Bernoulli effect - Odin Energy

  1. 1. Odin Energy Augmented Wind Based Decentralized Energy Resource
  2. 2. Odin Energy makes a practical system to provide clean electricity to the world 2
  3. 3. Problems Access Provide electricity to all people Clean Convert to clean energy 3
  4. 4. 860 m Population without electricity (Source: IEA) 19.4% electricity % in final energy consumption (Source: IEA) 140 m Predicted # of electric vehicle in 2030 (Source: IEA) Problem - We need more electricity 4
  5. 5. 7 m Premature deaths due to air pollution (Source: WHO) 2.6 bn People without access to clean cooking (Source: IEA) 10.4% % of renewable in total energy consumption (Source: IEA) Problem - We need cleaner energy 5

  9. 9. Solar Problem – low generation efficiency 0% 5% 10% 15% 20% 25% 30% 35% 40% 45% Hydroelectric Wind Solar PV Solar Thermal Capacity Factors for Utility Scale Generators (USA) Source: U.S. Energy Information Administration 9
  10. 10. Solar Problem – panel material issues • Solar panels use lead, cadmium, and other noxious chemicals • Glass from PV is hard to recycle due to these materials • Burying solar panel wastes can make toxic materials to permeate the soil 10
  11. 11. Wind Problem – ineffective use of wind • Current wind power does not fully utilize energy of turbulent winds • Actual wind can be turbulent, not laminar flows that blow in multiple directions • Turbulent winds cause fatigue of the wind system, leading to failures • Current wind systems cannot generate power with a weak wind Laminar vs. Turbulent flows 11
  12. 12. Wind Problem – noise, vibration “The Germans fighting wind farms close to their homes” (DW.com, 2019-11-26) •"when strong winds push the rotors at full speed to generate electricity, they make a continuous whooshing sound like faraway planes flying by." •"Economy Minister Peter Altmaier drafted a law this month that would require new turbines to be built at least 1,000 meters from a residential area, defined as being made up of at least five houses." •“… could reduce the already limited space that can be used for wind farms by 20% to 50%” 12 https://youtu.be/Mk5zMxYVca0
  13. 13. Wind Problem – frequent failures • Mechanical failures at least once in 1 to 2 years • Vibration due to the high pole • Some systems fail more than 10 times a year • At least a few days to repair the system • It takes longer if components come from overseas 13
  14. 14. Wind Problem – bird strikes U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service • “… bird deaths from turbine collisions are between 140,000 and 500,000 birds per year.” • “As wind energy capacity increases … mean bird deaths resulting in collisions with turbines could reach 1.4 million birds/year.” Source: https://www.fws.gov/birds/bird-enthusiasts/threats-to- birds/collisions/wind-turbines.php 14
  15. 15. Odin Tower is augmented wind based decentralized energy resource 15
  16. 16. Odin innovation – better utilization of winds Bernoulli principle-based structure • Wind becomes faster entering the tower • Can generate with slower winds • Larger power created at the same-speed wind • Turbulent flows become laminar flows on entering 16
  17. 17. Odin innovation – stacked tower Tower built by floor • Install capacity to suit purpose • 10KW to 1MW per tower • Diameter from 10m to 36m • Repair failed floor, operating the others • Solar panels can be put on top and sides • Bird strike is rare thanks to visible tower • Lower floors can be used for various purposes 17
  18. 18. Odin innovation – robust structure Turbine fastened up and down • Low vibration and noise • Can generate with strong wind • Low failure rate 18
  19. 19. Odin Tower can generate 4x electricity as regular small wind systems Wind speed Height effect* Guide wall effect** Output electricity*** 12 regular small wind turbines on land 1 - - 1 12-story Odin Tower 1 x1.25 x1.3 4.3 19 *Following Deacon equation **Odin experiences, including Bernoulli effect ***Power output increases cubically with wind speed
