The Advanced WindWall™

Our most advanced wind turbine system is 100 kilowatts (kW ) size, the Advanced WindWall™ (AWW) is a revolution in the wind turbine market. Not because of its power output or its size but both. The AWW much like the standard WindWall is an array of MicroCubes. The AWW is different in that it contains either 100 MicroCubes™ linked into two arrays on either side of the main tower. The main tower at its base is connected to a worm geared motor to rotate the AWW. Every minute the anemometer & wind vane on top of the main tower signals the AWW to adjust its self to ensure maximum efficiency is being reached in all wind speeds. This is extremely important as the AWW has a cut in speed of just 1.5mph and has been tested to speeds of 140mph.

AWW Power Curve

The power curve for the Advanced WindWall™ is much different from traditional wind turbines. Our power output starts at just 1.5mph and we achieve 100kW around 17mph. ( Due to external electronics power for each Advanced WindWall™ is capped at 100kW) Our greatest advantage over all other wind turbines is our range. With the ability to operate from 1.5mph to 140mph wind speeds, the AWW is constantly remaining a reliable, resilient source of power ( The Light gray line shows the power curve of our traditional wind turbine competitors.)

Ducted Difference

One of the many unique features of the Advanced WindWall™ is its advanced ducting system. When combined with our blade design we are able to get significant more energy out of the air than with an open-bladed system. Why? Because the ducting of the Advanced WindWall™ increases the wind speed at what the blades see by 2x. ( As shown in our CFD analysis to the left.) Normally this would cause significant of back pressure in front of the blades; however, because of our unique blade design that sucks the energy out of the wind speed and the pressure of the air at the same moment in time, you can see that the air accelerates into and past the blades. (We must note that this air is of much lower pressure than ambient air.) With Observation of the CFD to the left, it can be seen that the wind speed of the ambient air is around 36mph. Due to the ducting and blade systems, the wind speed right before the blades is closer to 90mph. This shows CFD Analysis gives you a visual of what can not be seen by the naked eye.

Wind Tunnel and CFD Modeling Results.

GTRI was tasked with testing the MicroCube™ and MicroSphere™ from the absolute lowest wind speed to the maximum of the wind tunnel. The results of the test were a confirmed power curve. During the test, a drag assessment was completed. It concluded that the MicroCube™ and MicroSphere™ tested had a drag coefficient of just 0.2 and only produced ten pounds of drag at 100mph. ( less than the mirror of a car. )

It is important to note that regardless of the level of measurement accuracy and controllability, test data for a common test article will show some level of variation in performance when measured at different facilities. This is due to a variety of possible differences including measurement methods and instrumentation accuracy, facility operations, and the inherent limitations of how well a wind tunnel simulates “real-world” conditions. However, even with these possible effects impacting the test data, the revised JT results indicate improved agreement with GTI data, which provides experimental confirmation of the performance of AWI’s micro wind turbine designs”

What is shown is the airflow being accelerated through the MicroCube™. The slow airspeed shown in blues and greens turns into red and yellow as it passes the blades, showing the unique ability of the MicroCube’s blade design.

Size Matters

Conventional renewable energy systems produce large amounts of power but at the expense of large amounts of space. This limitation found in conventional systems reduces their applications. When you compare systems of equal electrical output you see the vast difference in American Wind, Inc’s technology.
