Electricity generation from wind power, using
hollow moulded fibreglass blades, large rotor diameters and durable
components. Grid connector available. Suitable for domestic,
residential commercial and industrial applications.
Soma Wind Generators are
manufactured 100% in Australia. Two models available: 400 Watt and
1000 Watt. Soma also manufacture guyed tilt towers, and have
available a range of split see-saw towers for those applications
that require a single pole tower
without guy wires.
Soma Wind Generators can be used in
stand-alone systems where no grid is available and in grid connect
systems where they are used to offset electricity bills.
The Soma Grid Connect wind
generators are designed for a higher voltage output to match
the input range of typical grid connect inverters. A controller is
included with the wind generator to rectify the AC output of the
Soma, plus to provide protection for the inverter. The controller
will allow the wind generator to spin up to a typical inverter
cut-in voltage of 150V but will limit the DC output of the
controller to 300VDC with a FET transistor switch which connects a
dump resistor across the DC output. The dump load switching circuit
maintains the voltage between 220V and 300VDC while the inverter is
waiting to Synchronise with the grid. Also included is an
independent crow bar thyristor circuit to clamp the DC output in
case of regulator failure. An AC failure relay is included as well,
so that the AC output of the wind generator is shorted during a
grid failure. This will brake the wind generator and prevent it
from spinning and dumping energy during extended grid failures.
