Q4H Series horizontal-mounted Wind Turbine (for wind funnels).

Long horizontal wind turbine

Long horizontal wind turbine

In some cases, there is opportunity to harvest wind being funneled, say under a house, to add to the savings on the power bill.

In one particular case, the height of the floor of the house is 6 metres from the ground facing out to the valley, and less than a metre high at the front.  The wind coming up the valley is almost continuous, and is compressed as it comes up the hill, under the house.   It provides a perfect driving force for this kind of turbine, which quietly produces power.

H Series Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

Vertical axis wind turbine

Vertical axis wind turbine

X-H series Vertical axis wind turbines are one of the most successful vertical wind generator systems in the world.

The main advantages of this vertical wind turbine are:
1) Very quiet, very low rotational speed.
2) Extremely low start-up torque, good output in low breeze wind conditions.
3) Safe in strong wind conditions.
4) Reliable and durable.

Features & Technology:

These wind turbines feature advanced technology to improve performance and durability.  Here are some of the features

1. Generator:

Vertical turbine generator

Vertical turbine generator

The strongest magnets (Neodymium Iron Boron Magnets) and most advanced technology are used in this motor.    Experiments show that Neodymium Iron Boron Magnets are lighter and more efficient than any other material.     The rotor’s tangential structure design also contributes to the motor’s superior performance.    Special electromagnetic technology is used to make the generator has extremely low start-up torque, which makes sure the VAWT starts up in just a gentle breeze.

3. Double Security System:
These wind turbines are equipped with two security systems.     If the wind becomes too strong, the system will activate its over-speed protection, using a mechanical speed limiter, and an electromagnetic brake.    Good quality, reliable performance and long lifetime durability are our main concerns.

Frequently asked questions:

1) What kind of places are good to install this type of wind generator ?
The ideal site should have consistent high average wind speeds and minimal turbulence.    The higher the average wind speed, the higher is the generated power, and greater is the total output of electricity.   (For example, a wind speed of 5 m/s can generate nearly twice the electricity than a wind speed of 4 m/s.)

2) Does the wind generator need routine maintenance after installation ?
H series vertical wind turbines have been designed to provide you with reliable, free and clean energy for many years.    Even though the wind turbines are made to be maintenance-free, regular check-ups, and monitoring the general condition of the system, will ensure electrical and mechanical integrity, and the safety of the system.
