The International Exhibition of Innovation, Research and New Technologies “Innova Valencia 2018” was held during the FORINVEST 2018 (Valencia, Spain) on March 7-8, 2018.
LLC “VDM-tekhnika” presented the project “Wind turbine with increased efficiency at low wind speed (3-6 m/s)”.
The presented project is a result of development of wind turbines with increased efficiency in the extended range of wind speeds (including the areas with a low average annual wind speed of 3-6 m/s), which was financed by Skolkovo and the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation in 2015-2017. The international examination of the project was carried out by DNV GL.
Based on the use of innovative technologies, a prototype of a low-power wind turbine with an estimated wind speed of 7 m/s was created and tested. The wind farm has a number of unique competitive advantages in the segment of “small winds”.
The results of the works are formalies by the international applications WO/2017/111645 (23.12.2015) and PCT/RU2016/000848 (13.12.2016) “Method for regulating the selection of wind turbine power”, on which basis 16 international patents are being issued.
The implemented technical solutions provide efficient selection and conversion of a low-potential wind power.
The new wind turbines can be successfully used as a part of hybrid power supply systems with a high level of fuel replacement for sites and settlements in the remote and hard-to-reach areas.
The results of the work allow the emergence of a new segment of the global wind energy market.
The presented project was highly appreciated by the International Jury. Gold Plus Medal (Grand Prix) and Premio a la mejor innovacion (the main prize of the jury), the diploma and the prize of the delegation of Iran, the diploma and the prize of the delegation of Moldova, the diploma of Rospatent were awarded.
