VERTICAL AXIS WIND TURBINE

NºPublicación: WO2019073189A1 18/04/2019

Solicitante:

MERCER GUY NIGEL [GB]

Resumen de: WO2019073189A1

Apparatus (1) for harvesting wind energy on a large scale consists of an annular support structure (4), floating on a body of water (2), which can rotate about its hub (3). Multiple vertical aerofoil units (6, 76, 206), mounted at equal intervals around the support structure (4), can pivot independently about a vertical axis (17, 217). The aerofoil units (6, 76, 206) are each held at a suitable angle of attack relative to the ambient wind (7) by vertical canard aerofoils (13, 213) mounted to a boom (12, 212) extending forwards from a leading edge (10) of the main aerofoil (8, 208) of each aerofoil unit (6, 76, 206). A cam follower mechanism (21) in the pivot mounting of each aerofoil unit (6, 76, 206) directs the angle of attack of the canard aerofoils (13, 213), so that the angle of attack of the respective main aerofoil (8, 208) is optimised for the current position of the aerofoil unit (6, 76, 206) around the rotating support structure (4). The main aerofoils (8, 208) thus generate a torque causing the apparatus (1) to rotate. Electrical power is generated from the rotation of the apparatus (1), for example by generators at the hub (3).

During towing, the hull substantially has the character of a barge, substantially relying on a large waterplane area and shallow draft to maintain stability. When the buoyancy tanks (17) are partly or completely flooded with water, the counterweight (3) will sink to an installed position at a level determined by the counter- weight suspension means (18). In this position the counterweight acts as a keel, stabilizing the foundation. The counterweight suspension means (18) are separately or jointly capable of transfer- ring both forces and moments to the hull (1), thereby enabling the counterweight (3) to stabilize the hull (1) when the counterweight (3) is in its installed position.
