Wind For Home And Business New

  1. 2. Presents
  2. 3. Wind Energy Systems for Home, Farm or Business <ul><li>Why it makes sense to invest in a Wind System: </li></ul><ul><li>with David Ault, President of Private Energy Systems, Inc. </li></ul>
  3. 4. Q: What is the windiest city in the USA? <ul><li>A: According to the National Climate Data Center’s list of annual average wind speeds, the windiest U.S. city is Dodge City, Kansas , with an average speed of 13.9 mph. Other windy cities include Amarillo, Texas (13.5mph) and Rochester, Minnesota (13.1mph). </li></ul>Minneapolis isn’t that far behind Rochester, MN! The average wind speed at the Minneapolis-St.Paul Airport is 10.5 mph. This is actually faster than “The Windy City”, Chicago’s annual wind speed of 10.4mph
  4. 8. Types of Turbines
  5. 9. Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine <ul><li>Normally have 3 blades </li></ul><ul><li>Needs to be 30 ft above obstacles </li></ul><ul><li>Has been producing energy for over 30 years </li></ul><ul><li>Smaller version of a utility grade turbine </li></ul><ul><li>PES turbines use “Stationary Magnet Technology” </li></ul><ul><li>No gears, no grease, and no regular maintenance </li></ul><ul><li>Can stall with turbulent wind conditions </li></ul><ul><li>Can face downwind or upwind with a tail or motorized steering </li></ul>
  6. 10. Vertical Axis Wind Turbine <ul><li>Used in Europe, Australia, and Asia </li></ul><ul><li>Considered the “Urban” Turbine </li></ul><ul><li>Power generator has 9 international and 4 Asian patents </li></ul><ul><li>Blade configurations vary by manufacturer </li></ul><ul><li>Can harness wind from any direction and has less chance to stall </li></ul><ul><li>Higher investment level based on newer technology and high demand </li></ul>
  7. 11. Additional Components <ul><li>Towers & Poles </li></ul>
  8. 12. Additional Components <ul><li>Towers & Poles </li></ul><ul><li>Power Inverters </li></ul>
  9. 13. Additional Components <ul><li>Towers & Poles </li></ul><ul><li>Power Inverters </li></ul><ul><li>Switching & Transformer </li></ul>
  10. 14. Additional Components <ul><li>Towers & Poles </li></ul><ul><li>Power Inverters </li></ul><ul><li>Switching & Transformer </li></ul><ul><li>Metering & Automation </li></ul>
  11. 15. Towers & Poles <ul><li>Monopole </li></ul>
  12. 16. Towers & Poles <ul><li>Monopole </li></ul><ul><li>Guyed Tower </li></ul>
  13. 17. Towers & Poles <ul><li>Monopole </li></ul><ul><li>Guyed Tower </li></ul><ul><li>Self Supporting </li></ul>
  14. 18. Inverters <ul><li>Converts energy from DC to AC power </li></ul><ul><li>Interface for connecting to utility company </li></ul><ul><li>Connects to storage or electrical load </li></ul><ul><li>Needs to be in climate controlled environment </li></ul><ul><li>Is generally over 25% of system investment </li></ul><ul><li>Normally has performance of over 91% </li></ul>
  15. 19. Switching & Transformers <ul><li>Disconnect Switch </li></ul><ul><li>Utility Transformer </li></ul><ul><li>Dump Loader </li></ul><ul><li>Utility Meter for tracking energy production </li></ul><ul><li>Normally would be found in small on-site Utility Building </li></ul>
  16. 20. Typical Grid Tie Picture
  17. 21. Metering & Automation <ul><li>Provides real-time feedback of energy production </li></ul><ul><li>Tracks energy production over a period of time </li></ul><ul><li>Interfaces with other energy control system </li></ul><ul><li>Designed to track Carbon Credits with future value known as “Green Tags or Energy Credits” </li></ul>
  18. 23. Utility Grid-Tie vs. Energy Storage
  19. 24. Returning Energy to the Utility Grid <ul><li>Utility companies are federally mandated to purchase power </li></ul><ul><li>Create an ongoing credit or receive steady income </li></ul><ul><li>One meter shows “Production” and one shows “Usage” </li></ul><ul><li>Requires approval of a “Net Metering Agreement” with Utility </li></ul><ul><li>Normally, best to return 100% of energy produced </li></ul>
  20. 25. Storage Options <ul><li>Create energy when the wind is strongest </li></ul><ul><li>Store energy for independent use </li></ul><ul><li>Winds are strongest at night, Energy demand is highest during the day </li></ul><ul><li>50 kW storage, up to 10 MW possible </li></ul><ul><li>Renewable fuel cell technology </li></ul><ul><li>More environmental friendly then Lead Acid battery with same toxicity as cola </li></ul>
  21. 26. Turbine Siting <ul><li>Higher than surrounding structures, 30’ or higher is ideal </li></ul><ul><li>Higher the better; Increased height = Increased wind speed </li></ul><ul><li>Increased production with higher elevations </li></ul><ul><li>1.5 x tower height from: property lines, buildings, power lines </li></ul><ul><li>100’ tower = 150’ drop zone </li></ul><ul><li>PES turbines are designed for up to 140 mph winds </li></ul><ul><li>Permit required for turbine trough City or County </li></ul>
