In contrast to horizontal or vertical wind turbines, wind panel has translatory motion of the blades, not rotational one. This gives the panel a scope of advantages, which makes it efficient and convenient for the urban usage.
In traditional wind turbines, the large generator and their twisted blades create infrasound. Due to our slower blade movement, smaller generator size, and innovative blade design, Sirocco panels produce no infrasound and have low mechanical noise.
Two key causes of turbine vibration are large generators and unbalanced construction. In contrast, Sirocco’s unsynchronized generators, spring damping system, and indirect drive decrease generator vibration. More blades equal more balance. Combined with the high internal resistance of our fiberglass frame, Sirocco wind panels create lower vibration than our any competing design.
The Sirocco panel is made of common elements that are simple in shape and are easily mass produced. Combined with the absence of expensive gearbox, Sirocco wind panels have a much lower cost per kWh than competing designs.
The power output of each panel can be increased or decreased with changes in blade width, angle of attack, and blade density. We can also create panels with different nominal wind speed adapted to site-specific operating conditions.
Sirocco wind panels have high power coefficient, which means utilizing wind flow in a more efficient way. In conventional wind turbines, the variable wind speed experienced along each blade’s length results in as little 1/3 of the blade length working efficiently. Sirocco’s blades all move at the same speed and experience maximum wind, and our linear motion doesn’t cause the degree of turbulence as rotational motion does. The result is increased energy production efficiency.
into the environment
The panel looks aesthetically pleasing, reminding viewers of a big conifer tree. The clean, simple design suits an urban sensibility and it’s even safe for birds!
Because Sirocco’s design is modular, with smaller and lighter blades, we we don’t require special (expensive!) transportation for delivery, and installation is simpler and much more cost effective.
The price of the wind panel Sirocco Energy is already 48% lower than that of one of the cheapest traditional wind turbines of the same power. It's means best ROI of project.
The min average wind speed for the effective work of the wind panels is 3.5 m/s. Therefore, we carry out additional meteotesting at the selected location, before installing the wind panel. Testing is from 6 to 12 months. According to the data, we provide an expert summary and the commercial proposal.
