Renewable Energies and Smart Grid » Wind

Wind energy captures the natural wind and converts the air’s motion into mechanical energy usually for electricity production and this mechanism is referred to a wind-electric turbine. The turbine blades are normally designed to capture the kinetic energy in wind and when start moving, they spin a shaft that leads from the hub of the rotor to a generator that turns the rotational energy into electricity. Here also De Lorenzo has developed many trainers of different levels and one in particular is aimed to a very high level that takes into account the operations of doubly fed induction generator (DFIG) and the fault ride through complete with SCADA software. For the basic level, a case containing the necessary modules has been designed to learn the first steps of this technology. For the medium level, a hybrid trainer can satisfy both the technicians and the installers (a kit based on sub-modules for solar and wind at the same time). For the high level, different configurations are proposed such as off-grid and on-grid with drive motor (DC or stepper) for indoor use and a trainer tunnel where it is possible to change the flow of the air that reaches the wind turbine performing experiments with or without load. This latter level is also supplied complete with software for data acquisition and processing.They are dedicated to schools, high schools and first years of university according to the level.

Products Details

This system provides you with all the answers you need concerning the basics of using wind energy. It discusses different topics, which are necessary for understanding the functions of wind power plants.

The study of how wind force, wind direction or rotor type influences the power output are only some examples of possible experiments. Both qualitative and quantitative experiments are described in detail in the manual provided with the kit

DL WIND-L

Didactic system for the study of the generation of electric energy from a wind turbine and its inlet in the mains network.

The device includes a stepper motor kit to drive the wind generator in absence of wind.

DL WIND-A1G

Didactic system for the theoretical and practical study of wind power facilities.

The device includes a stepper motor kit to drive the wind generator in absence of wind.

DL WIND-A1S

Trainer for the theoretical and practical study of a wind turbine and generation of electricity from wind kinetic energy.

With this trainer it is possible to change the flow of the air that reaches the wind turbine and to study its operation under no-load and load conditions.

DL WIND-B

This trainer allows the students to study the functions and operations of a modern wind power plant simulating the effects of the wind force and their effects on the plant.

This system operates through a brushless machine and the simulation software and the double‐feed asynchronous machine allows a practical and effective approach to this trainer.

The trainer has a modular structure that will grant teachers and students extreme flexibility during the study of the related topics and the performance of the experiments.

An interactive multimedia software is also available to allow performing the experiments set‐up as well as the visualization and management of the collected data through PC.

The control unit of this trainer allows controlling and operating a speed‐variable double‐feed asynchronous generator.

Thanks to this control unit it is possible to simulate and investigate the operating principles of this topic.

This control unit allows approaching and theoretically in depth analyzing the following topics:

• Operation of the double‐feed asynchronous generator;
• Integrated power switch for switching the generator on line;
• Reactive and active power, frequency and voltage control;
• Mains synchronization.

DL WPP

Modular trainer for the theoretical and practical study of the electric energy generation from a micro-grid wind turbine.

With the Wind Energy Advanced Trainer it is possible to perform experiments to determine the characteristics of a wind generator, study its off-grid operation with a battery charge regulator and its on-grid operation with the connection to the mains network.

DL WIND-AT

Modular trainer for the theoretical and practical study of the electric energy generation from a wind turbine.

With the Micro-Grid Wind Turbine Trainer is possible to perform experiments to study the conversion from wind energy to electrical energy, and measure the system parameters such as wind speed, turbine speed, electrical power and efficiency on a real wind turbine installed outdoor.
