Our country is in the forefront of countries basing the energy industry mainly on fossil fuels (hard coal and lignite), with a simultaneously low share of RES (Renewable Energy Sources). As a result of burning fossil fuels in the process of producing electricity and heat, large amounts of greenhouse gases are released into the atmosphere.
Our windmill, unlike the solutions used so far in the market, uses a vertical rotor axis of rotation. This makes it possible to significantly increase the actual force of the wind entering the turbine.
The result of this innovative solution is that it can even be used in places where, due to poor wind strength (average speed less than 5 m/s), the full potential of wind energy has so far not been exploited.
More energy produced compared to conventional wind turbines
More efficiency of the wind force acting on the windmill
Our turbine was based on the Pawlak turbine. It is a construction of two turbines, installed and positioned one above the other, on the same windmill mast.
In order to make better use of wind power, the streamers rotate on one axis but in opposite directions.
The generator achieves twice the turbine efficiency. This is due to the opposite direction of disc rotation. The speed of change of the magnetic field is then twice as high as with conventional solutions.
