The Tech That Could Fix One of Wind Power's Biggest Problems

Оценок: 32076 | Просмотров: 3420464
Hello World’s Ashlee Vance paid a recent visit to Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavik to see the next part of the green energy story. He found a start-up called Icewind that is building a new type of funky wind turbine designed to perform well in low-wind conditions but also to slow itself down in high-winds, preventing it from catching on fire or ripping apart.

Distributed generation needs funded and the large generators' transmission system needs to be retired and recycled to achieve public safety goals and efficiency through modernization. Get modern, improve efficiency and improve public safety, please.

Very old technology .... also at 2:21 you can see a sh*t quality weld, no welding inspector would pass that. It is terrible . ( In the past I worked many years as a certified Level 1 welder ) .

Sorry but conventional wind turbines if designed properly do not burst into flames from excessive winds , the blades are maneuverable to stop wind flow and fast winds . m I Like this but please dont deliberately lie to further your product, i would have actually purchased 4 if not fro the bullshit statement at the start. no power per blade speed info , pretty well no fuckign information at all about specifics, i can tell you now just form my BM/wand mech engineering that those fans will at the same speed claimed bye this video of large wind generators bursting into flames, this thing will fly to pieces and have the ability to inflict very much harm in busy street. Its obvious from viewed application these thing dont put out enough power fro long enough to power a house or a engineering workshop, probably might produce enough power to charge a phone battery .

There is no F.M. concerning wind energy. The only important fact is velocity and barometric pressure. The densest air at a high velocity contains the most energy. Aircraft fly high because the mass of air is low and presents less opposing force to the speeding aircraft moving through the air.

There is no way an enercon turbine would last 3 years. You just would never bother buying it in the first place. Also vertical axis turbines always suffer with main bearings this is why quiet revolutions went bankrupt

I like these. They have useful applications. But they can't replace our current power needs. Wind power NEVER can. There is no doubt also a more aerodynamically efficient version of the blades which is more 3d than flat, so the conversion to rotational energy could probably be improved. The real issue is neodymium, or the efficiency of turning rotational energy to electricity - the cost-benefit of this is just not favorable.

Ok so 50% collection is 50%collection with this kind of set up. But what if you had a few at every house to assist the power grid. I say there should be at least one or two to assist the grid. Couldn't hurt. Or maybe on light posts in smaller versions.

Ken Jackson (1 месяц назад)
One apparent ADVANTAGE of this design over the conventional design is that the shadow doesn't cause much of a strobe effect, and there's probably much less air pressure pulsing. Those are both cause health problems and depression, so it should be safer to use this design closer to people.

This video was a disappointment, why don't you show some power output or refer to the value of a bus stop charging station, the difference between a dead phone and a charged phone could save someones life or have life changing effects so its not just about cheap power or huge power but availability and sustainability.

dlwatib (1 месяц назад)
The main problem that needs to be addressed isn't overspin. Conventional three bladed prop designs address this with brakes and blade tilt adjustment mechanisms. (Overspin in a properly functioning wind turbine cannot cause a nacelle fire.) The main problem that is not being addressed is bird and bat mortality due to collisions with high speed blade tips.

As soon as they attempt to bring that to the american market. The Patton will be bought. The inventor will be payed a few million. A gun will be put to their heads to stay silent. The Patton will be put on the top of a large stack of other Pattons in a drawer along with other energy saving technology. It will never be used. The rich get richer and the poor keep paying.

The problem with both wind and solar power is that it does not produce much power. The become useful, we need a setup that is small like this, but can power an entire home or business. That is when we we see the benefits. This technology is much like electric cars. It is useless to have an electric car that only has a 1 hour range. That doesnt get you from one side of a large city to the other side.
Calamity Jean (1 месяц назад)
Electric car ranges are measured in miles, not hours. An electric car that's standing still uses almost no power, just enough to run the radio and passenger compartment ventilation & temperature control. This is unlike a fossil fueled car that "idles" and can run out of gas without moving. In an electric car you could be stuck in an all-day traffic jam and still have "juice" left in the battery.

vawt's (vertical axis wind turbine) are nothing new, with some design's being better then others.. this is not better then a lenz2 design simply because the shape of it and the area the wind is pushing on is cut in half, a full sqaure sheet would do better. and the lenz2 design not only use's the pushing of wind to spin it, it also use's a wing shape on the inside to help PULL it around. you'll also notice all high power turbines you WINGS because they are more effecient then pushing a wall around...

Looks cool, but you failed to mention how much better it is compared to other energy production sources. And also not how much it can give in energy in said time. Where are your numbers? Without it, this video is meaningless. And you should also talk about plans on how to improve this bit of technology.

Back when wind powered energy devices first became the rage in the US I remember seeing hundreds of small wind "mill" designs and one of then was the same as this one. I remember thinking that it some how reminded me of an elongated ships propeller, though the ones I saw were not reinforced as heavy as these, perhaps because the wind where they were was not as severe. What really burned my butt was that local municipalities passed ordinances against small private wind turbine because they thought they were counter to the aesthetic beauty of their towns! We have such an ordinance in our town and the thick headed socialist types in office will not remove it.

+đeri662 and productivity?
đeri662 (14 дней назад)
+Виталий Шестак Lifetime depends on a lot of factors, such as wind speeds, turbulences, torque control strategy etc. but it should be around 30 years according to some manufacturers. But this is for small-scale turbines, vertical axis turbines are hard to scale-up due to lower robustness compared to horizontal axis turbines. They would also need to be a lot bigger to produce the same amount of electricity as horizontal turbines due to lower efficiency. It's hard to say how much electricity this turbine produces. Average wind speed doesn't tell you much, because the turbine's power depends on the cube of wind speed (so if you have wind speed of 4 m/s half the time and 6 m/s other half of the time, it produces more electricity than having 5 m/s all the time). You would need to have measurements of wind speeds for all year long. The only thing I can really tell you is that the produced amount of electricity would be lower then from a horizontal axis wind turbine with the same rated power because of the lower efficiency.
Виталий Шестак (14 дней назад)
+đeri662 how mach energy does this turbine produce per one year (average wind speed=5m/s)?
Виталий Шестак (14 дней назад)
+đeri662 what's life time of this turbine ?
đeri662 (1 месяц назад)
+Frank Speaking Yes but the amount of water needed can be lowered a lot by using closed water circuits with cooling towers. We have a 600 MW coal power plant, which consumes only up to 0.3 m³/s, which is basically nothing. We also have a 700 MW nuclear power plant, which uses a lot of water from the nearby river because of higher efficiency. But if weather conditions are extreme, it can also use a lot less water by utilising cooling towers. They weren't shut down because of insufficient water but because there are limitations of river water temperatures as far as I'm informed.
Seth Maskovich (3 месяца назад)
why not use nuclear? it's safe
Sara Teubert (3 месяца назад)
Why don't they just make wind turbines have a system built in to resist high wind speeds? Like one of those old-timey centrifugal brake type things where if it starts going too fast, centrifugal force makes the arms spress out and slows it down. Don't know the proper way to describe it, but it's like the exact OPPOSITE of what happens when a ballerina spins and she pulls her arms in to spin faster. When the arms go out, spin slows down.
Jaizel Mhay Magnaye (3 месяца назад)
Gentlemen, if you don't mind what is the efficiency of this type of turbine?
đeri662 (3 месяца назад)
Savonious turbine's efficiency is about 15 %, they also have low power. These are the main reasons why horizontal axis wind turbines are preferred.
