The Stand-Alone Wind Turbine Aplication, "AEL-SWT", has been designed by Edibon for the training at both the theoretical and practicallevels in the field of wind turbines.
The "AEL-SWT" application provides several levels of training to give the user full knowledge and experiences about the most importantprinciples of wind turbines, power generation (stand-alone) and energy storage.
The "AEL-SWT" application includes real industrial devices such as a permanent magnet wind turbine, an AC/DC rectifier, a load regulator,as well as an analog ammeter and voltmeter to perform different measurements in the DC circuit. In addition, this application also includesa servo motor with its controller to regulate the rotation speed of the wind turbine and simulate different wind/generation conditions. Theapplication also includes a variable resistive load to perform different energy consumption.
On the other hand, different modules such as a single-phase inverter and an energy meter are recommended for this application. In thisway, the user can study a complete isolated wind energy installation.
In addition, this application includes a specific manual, which explains at theoretical level the subjects relating to wind turbines, batteriesenergy storage, etc. The thematic of the manual covers basic principles of functioning, control and operation of small scale wind turbinesat different wind speeds, energy storage in batteries, DC and AC power consumption, etc.
