VETROSUN next generation of wind-solar hybrid

VETROSUN next generation of wind-solar hybrid

VETROSUN hybrid is unique device which combine VETAR 15 HAWT small but powerful which and specially shaped air deflector which is covered with PV solar panels. Combination of wind turbine and solar air deflector is designed in such a way that power output of VETAR 15 wind turbine is actually increased relative to standalone version.

Long Description

We propose build of VETROSUN 15i4.2 hybrid for urban application in some of Serbian cities (but can be done alternatively anywhere in the world) as technology demonstrator for small (3.6 meter highest diameter of wind turbine) and 6.5 m diameter of solar deflector but very powerful (19.2 kW) wind solar hybrid. Advantages of this technology relatively to conventional most commonly used tree bladed HAWTs are:

Reduced intermittency due to solar power

Much smaller size relatively to same power output

Lack of vibrations

Lower noise

Do not kill or maimed birds and bats

Much higher versatility of application (can be used safely in urban environments, on transport vehicles (ships or trucks as mobile reasonable meaningful renewable energy source, can be used on airports etc.)

Reliability – due to two counter rotating rotors attached on two independent electro generators.

As such this kind of hybrid can be used very successfully in urban environments without any negative footprint commonly related with conventional wind turbine of same or similar power output (size, noise, vibrations, and safety). As such this new generation of renewable devices will give completely new meaning to sustainable, green smart cities.
