Specifications

The e150 Wind Turbine is one of the smaller wind turbines in the Kestrel range. Every feature is designed to optimise small scale renewable energy output, making clean energy accessible to everyone. Its cut-in speed is low in order to facilitate continuous generation, creating a reliable, auxiliary energy source that reduces traditional energy costs.

The durability of the Kestrel e150 wind turbine has been proven through many installations that experience wind speeds in excess of 150km/h. Modern living requires a massive amount of energy that is depleting fossil fuels.

Design

The heart of the machine comprises of a single axial flux permanent magnet brushless alternator. The six blade design is a self-regulating aerodynamic rotor that achieves speed control through blade turbulence, which controls the speed of the rotor with no moving parts and no obtrusive noise.

This allows the e150 to be one of the quietest small wind turbines on the market. Being only 1,5m in diameter and inconspicuous, it is suitable for urban areas as it harvests energy by harnessing the clean, abundant and renewable resource of wind.

Application
  • Replaces noisy generators for back-up power, that pollute due to the reliance on fossil fuels
  • Boost solar & other renewable energy installations increasing productivity, reliability & cost effectiveness
  • Grid tie applications using approved inverters to reduce energy costs
  • Power for energy requirements where there is no connection to the national grid
  • Generate dedicated power for signage eliminating high operating costs
  • Suitable as an educational tool, demonstrating renewable energy generation
  • Adaptable to meeting many specific electrical needs


Power Generation

Generating your own renewable power is low maintenance as routine maintenance is largely based on visual assessments. Maintenance schedules are designed to suit the local, respective, wind area and power class. With a maximum instantaneous power rating of 650W, annual energy harvests can exceed 2600kWh. Energy may be harvested at any wind speed above the cut-in speed and rated output is maintained at any wind speed exceeding the rated wind speed through rotor turbulence. Energy output is intrinsically linked to regional wind distribution, topology and altitude as well as tower height. Potential energy harvest is estimated using an average wind speed in order to tailor the most suitable Kestrel wind system to your electrical need.

Results may vary based on wind distribution, topology, tower height and altitude. In order to estimate ones own potential energy harvest an average wind speed must be used.
