US4430044A – Vertical Axis Wind Turbine – Google Patents

Fisioterapia ao domicílio - Serviços Especializados - FC Saúde More importantly, a reduced solidity ratio of the turbine permits operation at higher rotational speeds so that a transmission is not required to drive implements needing high speed inputs. 5 through 9, the wind turbine blade form 40 is symmetrical in profile and is designed to have a surface contour approximating that of a NACA 0018 specification when under non-exerted conditions, as is shown in FIG. The pivotal movement of the blade forms 40 is controlled by a torque sensitive control 44 positioned on the pivotal connection of the blade form 40 with the end of the rotor 36. The torque sensitive control 44 adjusts the position of the blade forms 40 relative to the rotor 36 so that they will provide high torque about shaft 30 throughout the operational range of the turbine.

Keeping an Eye on the Competition FIG. 9 shows a slight convex deformation of the blade surfaces 107 and 108 in a head-on position with wind flow W, to more closely approximates the NACA 0018 airfoil and provide correspondingly low drag. The pivotal displacement of the blade will gradually decrease as it approaches a zero degree orbit position until the blade is again in tangential position head-on into the wind.

The rotor is comprised of a spar type member 99 running longitudinally along its length which transports the forces exerted through it to the shaft 30 on which it orbits, as is shown in FIGS. Springs 146 are positioned to urge the blade form 140 to a tangential position by applying an outward force to the blade 140 at a forward lever arm 180 and a rearward lever arm 181. The blade 140 is adapted to pivot about the forward axis P when sufficient force is directed against either of its sides by a wind current, to overcome the force exerted by either of the springs 146 on the forward or rearward lever arms 180 or 181 of the blade 140. The pivotal displacement angle through which the blade 140 moves when the turbine is at rest is determined by a balance of the forces exerted by the springs 146 with the forces exerted against the side of the blade 140 by the wind.

A windspeed increase results in a change in the direction and velocity of the relative wind current R, which affects the balance between the torque sensitive control 44 and the force exerted against the side of the blade 40 by the wind. Generally, lift-type machine efficiencies are found in a range of 35 to 45%. Tip speed ratios may range from less than 1, as is common for the typical farm-type windmill, to between 4 and 6, as is common for vertical axis-type wind turbines as invented by G. Coronavirus y dolor muscular . J. M. Darrieus and described in U.S. 12 and 13. A light weight faring 100 is positioned over the spar 99, and rearwardly, to provide an air foil-shaped surface for minimum drag characteristics. The high rotational speeds also provide for a higher degree of efficiency and greater power production. This wind turbine is further capable of providing efficient power production throughout a large range of tip speed ratios, overcoming the limitations inherent in prior designs which have narrow efficiency bands and speed ranges.

The increased response of this invention is particularly beneficial because of the broad efficiency and power range it has provided by its design. However, none of the previous designs have provided a wind turbine which is capable of self-starting while being highly efficient throughout its entire operational speed range. FIG. 6 is a cross-sectional view of a deformable blade form showing an exaggerated representation of surface deformation when wind current flows against its side. FIG. 8 is a cross-sectional view of a deformable blade form which shows an exaggerated representation of surface deformation when wind current flows past from a rearward direction. FIG. 14 depicts a model diagramatically illustrating the components acting on the blade forms 40 to control their pivotal movement.

The ratio of the blade tip speed to the wind speed is commonly known as the tip speed ratio. Though low solidity ratios are normally associated with low efficiencies, low torque in low rotational speed ranges and an inability of the turbine to self-start, these problems are overcome by this inventive turbine through the combination in its design of known elements for efficient operation with a novel torque sensitive control means for directing the blade forms in a wind current.

This inability to begin rotation and accelerate to an efficient rotational speed is severe with the Darrieus lift-type (crosswind axis) wind turbine. The wind creates a drag force on the perpendicularly positioned blade to begin and sustain rotation. Dolor muscular lumbar . In this view, and with reference to FIGS. As the hinge pin 42 to which blade 40 is connected turns, the rearward face 61 of the collar raised portion 60 pushes the finger portion 63 of the rearward weight 48 to inwardly rotate the rearward weight 48 with the blade 40, extending the spring 46, as is described with reference to the model of FIG. An increasingly common method of self-starting a Darrieus type wind turbine is the use of variable pitch blades on the rotor which are articulated to change their pitch angle with reference to the relative wind current as they travel around their carousel-shaped path. These generated forces create a torque about the shaft 30 through the rotor arms 36, to accelerate rotation of the turbine to produce power.

The second motive force employed to propel a wind machine is a lift force generated as wind current flows past an air foil. The drag force component generated by the blade form 40e in this position is larger than the drag force component acting against rotation of the turbine on blade form 40a in the zero degree position, thereby providing a resultant force in a direction to accelerate rotation of the turbine. The pivotal movement of the blade form 40 will reach a maximum as limited by the torque sensitive control 44 before it reaches the 90° position of its orbit, and will remain in a maximally pivoted position by force of the wind current W against its outer side until the blade form 40 approaches the 180° orbit position.

The Stupid Lamb: Literatura - RESEÑA: Éxodo de Anissa B.. The pivotal movement of the blade is generally controlled by a biasing means, such as a spring, which urges the blade into a tangential position with its orbit. As the blade form 40 progresses toward a 45° orbit position, it will initiate an outwadly directed pivotal displacement to obtain a favorable pitch angle with the wind flow W for generation of maximized lift force. Angle θg therefore equals angle θf. The blade form 40a therefore remains in tangential position as urged by springs 146 of FIG. Illustration of this change in the relative wind current R is shown in the Vector diagrams of FIG. As can be seen from the vector diagrams of FIG.

Each of the relative wind currents Ra through Rh depicted in FIG. Each blade will, therefore, effectively oscillate between equal but opposite pivotal positions, inwardly and outwardly of a tangent of its orbit as it progresses through a full revolution. The forward weight shoulder 68 and the rearward weight shoulder 66 rest against the inside of the end cap 39. The raised portion 60 of the collar 51 is thus captured between the finger portions 64 and 63 of the forward and rearward weights 47 and 48, respectively, and maintain the blade form 40 in a substantially tangential position with its orbit 38, until sufficient force is applied against either of the side surfaces of the blade 40 to move a weight 47 or 48 and extend a spring 46, as was described supra in the model apparatus of FIG. Higher speed capability yields a higher tip speed ratio, as was previously discussed, which in turn gives increased efficiency and greater power production, these values more nearly approaching ideal parameters.
