Abstract

EXPERIMENTAL STUDY ON MINIATURE FABRICATED MODEL OF MAGLEV WIND TURBINE

Preetham D. S.* and Dr. M. S. Shashikala

ABSTRACT

Conventional wind mill having a maximum efficiency of 30% and energy efficient wind mill Can operate in maximum efficiency of 45%. The remaining energy is mainly lost in friction. If theSame wind mill is operating at 50% of its maximum speed the efficiency becomes very low and the frictional loss gets increased compared to power generated. The drawback of wind mill is that it it cannot be operated at its full capacity all the time. Moreover due to friction there will be wear and tear in machines. Due to the wear and tear the performance of the machine will deteriorate and also Normal windmill can start its generation from wind speed of 3 m/s. Based on the above facts project aims at designing and fabricating wind mill using magneticlevitation method thereby energy wasted in the form of friction can be saved and also windmill using magnetic levitation can start generation from wind speed at 1.5m/s. Operation of windmill at lower speeds, increases the amount of energy harvested from the windmill. A thorough experimental investigation is tried; the results obtained will be compared with the model of conventional windturbine. Power will then be generated with an axial flux generator, which incorporates the use of permanent magnets and a set of coils.
