About Windmills and
One of the most controversial issues about wind power is the
fact that wind is so variable and that the efficiency of a
windmill is different based on the type of windmill in
Constant wind speed is a fair measure of your expected power
output but not the best measure. This is because of
"burst" wind power.
As wind speed increases, the power available goes up as the
cube of the speed. What this means is that if you
double the wind speed, you get 8 times as much power.
What you end up with is burst wind (short increases or
gusts) can generate as much or even more than the constant
wind figure that you see for your area. When you take
gusts into account, you can actually double the amount of
power you have available. Just remember that windmill
efficiency can greatly limit what you can harvest.
unit - electrical power for off-grid use
Water pump unit -
a basic work load task for windmills
unit - have compressed air anywhere
Marine units -
power for your boat, including trolling motors
The Air Diode can operate virtually any rotary device.
This means that you can drive an air compressor and store
the energy as compressed air. Imagine having
compressed air on demand without having to run power lines.
If you have underground cables that must be kept at positive
pressure, this device can do it. If you have pneumatic
devices that have unreliable electrical power, you can
supplement your needs with the Air Diode.
Water supplies for livestock or power for pond aeration - no
utility power needed!
