Airdolphin Well-Known Small Wind Turbine Brand Name

Due to extensive media coverage, Airdolphin has become something like a flagship Mini Wind Turbine and the darling of worldwide audiences. Despite the relatively high price per Watt installed and the rather steep $6000 to $6500 price tag usually attached to them by American vendors, there is tremendous interest in these two high-tech mini wind turbine models. After all, Airdolphin small wind turbines can still be cheaper and more efficient than solar PV, and the high-quality craftsmanship invested into Airdolphin small wind turbines on the manufacturer’s part and the resulting durability will go a long way in justifying the upfront cost.

  • rotor diameter 1.8 m
  • top power 3.2 KWp
  • generator voltage 24 V DC
  • inverters available for 230 V AC/120 V AC utility-grade power and/or grid-interconnection and feeding-out clean energy
  • cut-in windspeed 2.5 m/s
  • start-up windspeed (electronically) 0.0 m/s with ‘power assist’ function, improves extreme low-wind performance
  • extremely wide range of power-producing wind speeds: from 2.5 m/s to 50 m/s, i e from a light breeze to Taifun-force extreme weather
  • survival-windspeed of 65 m/s, meaning Airdolphin likely to be “last man standing”…
  • swing rudder system makes Airdolphin highly responsive to gusty winds and suitable for built-up areas, increasing total annual output significantly even in “unclean” wind situations
  • optimum 3.2 KWp power output reached at wind speed of 20 m/s for 20-40 secs
  • electronic generator breaking mechanism for RPM reduction in high winds and remote start/stop control (incl internet-based control and monitoring over standard web browser)
  • expected annual production of 1900 KWh to 2200 KWh at suitable sites
  • very good sites might come in at 2500 KWh/a or even more, depending on local wind situation
  • rated capacity 1.0 KW @12.5 m/s
  • UK green energy cashback of 39.3p per KWh exported to the grid (highest FIT band for <1.5 KW rated capacity)
  • exceptionally low noise levels due to advanced blade design
  • neat overall design with diecast alloy casing reducing optical impact on surroundings
  • maintenance-free design, electronically balanced blades, anti-corrosion teflon-based paint, screwless casing
  • design life of 20+ years

Miniwindanlagen und Nennleistung: Die kleinen Mogeleien aus Asien

Die Gepflogenheiten bei der Ermittlung der Nennleistung bei Kleinwindanlagen http://bit.ly/RqQ2Bt werden von zumeist asiatischen Herstellern zunehmend unterwandert: im Bestreben, ihren eigenen Produkten ein auf den ersten Blick “besseres” Abschneiden zu ermoeglichen, versuchen die ueblichen eher zweifelhaften Vertreter der Branche in China (und mitunter auch Japan) durch “Nennwindgeschwindigkeiten” von albernen 12 m/s hohe “leistungsdaten” aus ihren Anlagen herauszukitzeln.

Wenngleich dies bei ahnungslosen Kaeufern leider zu Fehlentscheidungen (meist zugunsten irgendwelcher nicht-so-tollen Billiganlagen) fuehrt, vermag diese Praxis bei genauerem hinsehen natuerlich nicht zu ueberzeugen — fuehrt in vielen Faellen langfristig sogar zu eigener Rufschaedigung und unzufriedenen Kunden. (in der Regel ist der Kaufpreis dann jedoch laengst vom Hersteller einkassiert.)

Neben den genannten Billiganlagen aus China gehoert jedoch auch die technisch anspruchsvolle und solide gebaute Airdolphin-Miniwindanlage in diesen Bereich. Schade.

Die uebliche Meßmethode fuer Miniwindanlagen ist, die Nennleistung bei einer Testgeschwindigkeit von 8 m/s (und nicht bei 12) zu ermitteln! Auch fuer Miniwindsysteme (also Anlagen zwischen 1000 Watt und 15 KW Nennleistung bei 8 m/s) sollte dies gelten.

Die untere Grafik reicht ueberhaupt nur bis 8 m/s und ist damit ein laudables Beispiel…

Vergleichsdaten bei anderen Geschwindigkeiten, auch jenen oft in Taeuschungsabsicht herangezogenen 12 Metern pro Sekunde, koennen ja vom jeweiligen Hersteller gern zusaetzlich angegeben werden.

Angesichts dieser Situation ist es lobenswert, daß zahlreiche Europaeische, britische und amerkanische Hersteller weiterhin technisch einwandfrei bei 8 m/s messen.
