PART 1 WIND POWER PROGRAMS – RPM AT MPH.wmv

THIS IS A VIDEO THAT I WROTE TO FIGURE OUT HOW MANY RPMs THE WIND TURBINE WILL SPIN FREELY WITH NO LOAD ON IT IN THE GIVEN WIND CONDITIONS IN A CERTAIN AREA. THAT WAY I WOULD KNOW WHAT VOLTAGES TO EXPECT IN THE AVERAGE WINDS OF THAT AREA. AND IF THE WINDS ARE LOWER FOR THAT AREA I COULD EITHER SHORTEN THE PROP FOR A LITTLE MORE RPMs. OR I COULD JUST ADD MORE MAGNETS, OR REWIRE THE OUTPUTS. ONE OTHER ADVANTAGE TO THIS PROGRAM IS IF I KNOW THE EVERY DAY AVERAGE WIND SPEED , I CAN DESIGN THE ALTERNATOR TO GIVE ME A DESIRED OUTPUT. TOGETHER WITH THE OTHER PROGRAM THAT IS PART 2, I CAN FIGURE OUT THE EXPECTED POWER OUT AND DETERMINE THE PROP SIZE AND THE RPMS NEEDED TO GET THE JOB DONE, AND THE DESIRED WIRE SIZE. ALL THESE FACTORS ARE VERY IMPORTANT IN THE DESIGN OF A WIND TURBINE FOR YOUR AREA. THIS IS A GIFT TO YOU MY VIEWERS AND I HOPE YOU FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET THE MOST OUT OF IT. I WILL PROBABLY OFFER THE FULL 2 PROGRAMS TO DOWN LOAD IF I CAN FIND A SITE TO PLACE THEM AT. THESE PROGRAMS ARE IN GWBASIC LANGUAGE. THERE IS A SITE CALLED FRIENDLYRAT.COM WHERE YOU CAN DOWN LOAD THE BASIC COMPILER TO RUN THESE PROGRAMS. SORRY I LEARNED TO PROGRAM WHEN I WAS GOING THROUGH ROBOTICS AT TEXAS STATE TECHNICAL INSTITUTE IN SWEETWATER/ROSCOE CAMPUS, A DIVISION OF A&M. THIS WAS WAY BACK IN 1982 OR 83. HELLO COMMODORE 64 AND TRS 80s AND TI 99s THE CUTTING EDGE OF TECHNOLOGY FOR THE 80s , AND HELLO BASIC PROGRAMMING. THAT WAS WHEN 64 MEGABITES WAS REALLY COOL. BUT THE BEST THING IS THAT

REGENEDYNE Wind Turbine

www.Regenedyne.com Demo CGI for proposed 2GW Magnetic Leviatated wind Turbine. *Efficient Frictionless Power Generation with less maintenance, compared to HAWT. No oil change or replacement of the bearings, gears. Since, MAGLEV does NOT require such. ** Current bearing technology has forced wind turbine designers into horizontal spindle three bladed wind turbines. In this design the huge blades are connected to a spindle in the center. The bearings that support the spindle and control the pitch of the blades (which can be hundreds of feet long) see huge pitch-moment loading, some of which is manifest as torque energy that is focused through the center spindle. The target speed for the spindle is 18 or 20 rpm and the bearings holding the spindle are mounted in a huge casting which also contains a large gearbox stepping the speed up to 1800 to 2000 RPMs which allows for the proper surface speed relationship between the coils and magnets. It is necessary to invert or condition the current, which is expensive. This gearbox is full of many large bearings, gears and castings; for a 2 MW turbine the gearbox can easily weigh 30 tons. This gearbox needs to be mounted on the top of a pole more than 150 feet in the air and be able to support the turbine blades under full-force wind conditions. ***MAGLEV Power Generation, the pitch moment ratio is closer to 1-to-1 then the 100-to-1 as with a horizontal spindle design.
