There are several wind turbines classified according to size, construction and function. Very small turbines used to charge batteries or feeding to the grid with a rotor diameter up to 4m and nominal power rating of up to 3kW fits in with the category of micro wind turbines. 3kW to 50kW machines are in the small wind turbines category.
Regen focuses on micro and small (nominal power rating 3-50kW). The power in the wind is proportional to cube of the wind (when the wind speed doubles, the power increases by a factor of 8) and the swept area. The Home Power Magazine (www.homepower.com) has published an useful article that covers the energy analysis, efficiency issues, resource analysis, wind turbine selection and balance of system.
Regen is proud to be associated with kestrel, SouthWest Wind Power and GAIA Wind Turbines available in the market. Regen has also developed back to back AC/DC/AC grid connected inverters for small scale wind turbine generators (both induction and permanent magnet types). Regen is also working on a low cost 5kW grid connected wind turbine generator system.How to buy a Wind Electric System
Kestrel e300 is an advanced design 1kW wind turbine with three blades with a rotor diameter of 3m. A passive pitch control system allows the Kestrel e300 to continuously generate usable energy in wind speeds that exceed rated wind speed. Ideal for remote area electrification, grid connected residential wind systems, remote repeater and - Base Transceiver Station (BTS) applications.
Kestrel e400 is an advanced design 3kW wind turbine with three blades with a rotor diameter of 4m. A passive pitch control system allows the Kestrel e400 to continuously generate usable energy in wind speeds that exceed rated wind speed. Ideal for remote area electrification, grid connected residential wind systems, remote repeater and - Base Transceiver Station (BTS) applications. Up to 3000 watts of power from a high performance 3 blade turbine. Affordable clean electricity, adaptable to your needs. Reliable and convenient with a long-life design. Suitable for urban living.
The 11kW GAIA wind turbine has two blades (13 metre diameter ~ swept area of 133 sq.m),cut-in wind speed of 3 m/s and a rated wind speed of 11 m/s. The turbine is ideally suited for low wind regimes. The turbine is a proven machine developed according to the 'Danish design' which is basis for most of the large wind turbines on the market. It is based on a modular design using components that have been carefully selected to provide high quality, maximum reliability and low maintenance requirements. The GAIA 11kW wind turbine has been approved according to the official HB-standards laid down by the Danish Government. GAIA-Wind is the only manufacturer of small wind turbines to have achieved this approval. Regen power is an official distributor for the GAIA wind turbine for Australia, SE Asia and South Asia.Download Brochure
