1.0 Introduction
1.1 System Description
The PROVEN 6 Wind turbine generator has a rated output of 6000W at 300V A.C.The PROVEN 6 is a downwind three bladed turbine. It comprises a steel turbineframe mounted on a steel tower assembly. The turbine frame supports encapsulatedwindings and bearings that in turn support a rotating shaft and permanent magnetrotor assembly. One end of the shaft has a propeller blade assembly comprisingglass thermoplastic composite blades that are hinged on a rotor plate. The bladesare held in their correct position by Zebedee springs that allow the blades to form acone shape in high winds. In this shape, the turbine is able to limit its rotationalspeed. The turbine frame also houses a service brake assembly that acts upon abrake attached to the rotor shaft.The tower that is connected to the turbine frame has a steel base plate thatincorporates a raising and lowering mechanism. The top of the tower has a yawbearing assembly that permits the turbine frame to rotate. The blades are thereforeable to turn depending on wind direction and speed. A winch mounted inside thetower is connected to the service brake in the turbine frame.The generator encapsulated stator windings are connected to a slip ring unit at thetop of the tower for onwards connection to a certified junction box.
