Introduction /3*


Development of Wind Utilization

In our country,the energy of the wind has been widely utilized for a long time, mainly in the rural flour-mill industry. The namge of windmills reached 200,000 and in some large villages,there were up to 80 flour mills. These were wooden mills manufactured by the local farmers which had ,an average power of approximately '" 5 hp ',as a rule; rarely large windmills were found with a diameter of the wheel of 20-24 meters, and a power of 15-20, hp.-,In such a manner, the homemade mills had an average established power The average annual production of such a of 1,000,000 hp. mill amounted to around 8500,,hp hours;ccooemquently; ,all the

existing mills produced 170 0 million p. urs mer year., ' Considering that the specific output of a mill was kg/per hp hour, we find that all the windmills of Russia ground around S 34 million tons,or 2 billion pood of grain per year. s was based merely on the practical The construction of windcing experience of many years. The foreme:h taught the future generations not from books,but from their practical work. The development of engineering by the end of the nineteenth century has made it possible to create a new type of wind engine, with automatic adjustment to the wind and with control of the number of revolutions. The mass production of multi-blade windmotors of metallic construction started to developi , The development of aviation, the enormous success of which is due to the true creator of modern aerodynamics, the renowned Russian scientist N. Ye. Zhukovskiy, created the conditions for solving anew
he theoretical problems of utilization of wind energy. In 1914/4

1918, N. Ye. Zhukovskiy., and hi s distiples, who are now ,eminent scIin' tists in the ISS ,V. P. 'Vetchinkin, G. Kh. Sabinin, G. FR.'Proskura and others, eadratedfor the first time the theory of wind engines. The theory and experimental testing of airplane wing and propeller/ has been applied to the study of phenomena, taking place during the passage of the air flow,-.through the wind-driven:wheel.iIn t he :USSR; in the Central AerodynamiclInstitute, the Central Wind Energy Institute and in the All Union IMstitite for Mechanization and * Numbers in the margin indicate pagination in the foreign text. 1

Electrification of Agriculture, several original theoretical and experimental studies have been performed on wind engines and winddriven installations which t.odate *6rm the basis of thed.,evelopmenit of(, Soviet wind technology. At the same time an expansion is observed in the field of application of wind engines intthe national economy. In addition to flourmill industry and water supply, they are used for a wider mechanization in agriculture, for example, for the preparation of forage in animal husbandry, the irrigation of fields and vegetable cultures, the lighting of villages, etc. In the Soviet Union,' wind installations have found wide application and are acquiring a growing importance. The favorable wind conditions of the South, which is characterized by high annual averages of wind velocity, make it possible to use the adjustable B-12 wind engine, which gives completely uniform current voltage, and meets the demands of, electrical energy. The energy of the wind can be utilized almost everywhere; therefore, it has special importance among the other sources of energy. Wind utilization in the USSR ."has been regarded as an important State problem. As early as 1918, Vi. I. Lenin considered itit imperative to instruct the Acadamy of Sciencestto include in its plan of reorganization of the industry and fdr the,econ.omical development/5 of Russia,among other problems, water power and wind engines in genA eral, and their application to agriculture in particular. The 18th Congress of the VKP, in its resolution based on the reportofof Comrade V. M. Molotov indicated: "TObdevelop(' more extensively the construction of small wind-drivenel9tro-sttions -for

purposes' of fuel,,economy."
"To developu widely the construction of small kolkhoz hydrostations, wind power and gas generator ,..,elbctro6-installations based

on local fuel."
"To organize mass production of wind engines."

The' law on the five-year plan for iestorattontand development of national economy in the USSR in the years 1946-1 9 5 0 says: "To ensure mass construction in rural localities of small hydroelectrostations,-,wind stations and thermal-electro-stations with portable steam 'and gas generator engines., V~ I.

Complications may arise only when preparing root crops on calm days. makes it possible to utilize the energy of the wind in almost all kinds of agricultural work and fo'r lighting. especially in those regions where the annual average wind speed is below 5 m/sec. can be performed in stock. In this case. can obviously be efficiently utilized parallel with other electro-stations. The windmills in the USSR.has its history of many centuries. on the average. as wind charging units encounter no difficulties due to the inconsistency of the wind in the course of time. since the processing of seeds. make a fairly cumbersome process of production which should be mechanized entirely.

Consequently. In such a manner. ranging from 100 to 1000vWt. the energy accumulates in the product of the flour mill industry itself. one can always ensure the work of machines for the preparation of root crops.

The above presented list of the main branches of agriculture w where wind engines are widely and successfully utilized shows the importance and the significance in the development of wind utilization in our socialist economy. Wind installations are used abroad for various agricultural works. above 4 m/sec. 5 . and is about 10 times cheaper than the work of horse-drawn gear.accessible to the abilities and means of the k. the cost of production of wind engines is lower than the cost of production of thermal engines under identical conditions. In those regions where the annual average wind speed is kolkhozes. The cost of operation of wind power units is not higher than the cost of operation of thermal and hydraulic engines. wind-driven pump installations have gained the widest distribution. Mechanization of agricultural work by means of wind energy is quite simple and is. The wind engines produced for this purpose are of the multi-blade type and are geared to a piston pump.

The normal temperature t of the air in the TJSSR is assumed to be equal to 150 ah altitude of about 22 km. in other countries. I In aerodynamics it is convenient to measure the pressure in kilograms per square meters (kg/m2 ).e. at sea level. The zero of the absolute temperature is' 2730 below the zero of the Celsius scale. The elasticity of the air is manifested in the Air pressure. the magnitude of the pressure is expressed in mm Hg. but the excess pressure over the atmospherid one: p' = p-p where po is the atmospheric pressure. The pressure it exerts on the bodies which come in contact with it.'which equals ..i.

We can see from equation (19)athatethe concept of circulation is analogous to the concept of the work of force along any path dS. The dimension of circulation is E 2 sec -1. Velocity potential. The velocity potential is defined as the function of space 4(x,y,z), the detivative of which in any direction gives the projection of velocity V to this direction: VS= a(a)

Equation (a:) :givesurthe partial derivative since function 4 depends upon three coordinates of space and time. The flow wi'thh the velocity potential is called potential flow. If a fixed contour is represented in space, then instead of the partial derivative,the full derivative is written: P1 (b) hence:

i.e. the potential difference for two points is equal to the velocity flow along any line uniting these points:,

i.e. in the case of a single-valued velocityyiptential of flow, the velocity circulation for any closed contour equals 0. Consequently, in order to solve the problem whether there is a potential flow in any particular case, it is sufficient to prove/32 that the circulation r on any contour is or is not equal to 0. ,Baic theorems, about vortexes. In analyzing the motionof particle, in any plane which passes through its center of gravity, the concept of the average angular velocity of rotation is used. In order to determine the velocity of rotation of a fluid in point A (9), a .plane.;pp is passed through this point, the contour k is drawn ".'and the magnitude of.'the circulation r along the contour is determined. Therefore the projection of the average velocity of rotation of the fluid in point A relative to the normal to the area, is the following magnitude: (22)

The derivative wde is called the flow of ? the vortex through the area ,- do;, it is analogous to the flow rate Vda.

By rotating the area in all directions around point A, one can find the situation in which w will have aui;maximum value. The maghnituideoYf w and its direction determine i the vorticity of the fluid in point A. The.-Vctor w is called the vorticity vector. In order to study turbulent motion, several concepts are introduced about the component elements of turbulent motion, which facilitate the formulation of its laws..

In such a manner formula (22b) shows that the velocity circulation in an infinitely small contour ,is equal to twice the vortex flow through the area confined by this contour.

According to equation (22):

consequently,:)if r is constant, then the vector w should be continuousthroughout the space of fluid flow if we neglect the special cases a = 0 and a = m.

Hence, we obtain the Helmholtz the vortex filament cantheorem: not end suddenly in the fluid; either they extend to infinity or they close into rings or else they lean against the surface of the fluid (Fig. 13).

that a velocity potential 4 exists in the flow, consequently the flow has a velocity potential, while the flow outside the vortex string inside the string has no potential. Hence, the expression "potential flow" which means nonvortex flow in aerodynamics. Since the vortex flow wda is not equal to while zero and exists only inside the string, will flow vortex the it, it equals zero outside be equal to the flow inside the string .',regardless of the size and shape of the contour.

The strongest vortex formation is observed near the surface of the body On the surface of the body itself, the around which there is a flow. fluid is immobile,as it adheres to the body. At even a small distance from the body, the fluid acquires a large velocity which equals the velocity of the flow. The thin layer adhering to the surface of the body where the velocity which differs growth in velocity takes place from zero to the is u by 1% from the velocity of the potential flow around the body produces which viscosity, of result a As layer. border the called and tangential forces, the fluid in this layer is strongly turbulent therefore, issomethies,called the layer of surface turbulence.

Inmodern wind technology. 1 and 11 are the linear dimensions of nature and model v and v 1 are the coefficients of kinematic Viscosity' The Reynolds number (Rd) evalutes the forces of viscosity which retards the motion of the fluid. after we presented the concept about the scales of phenomena: two phenomena are called similar if identical scale are obtained for+ uni orm.. . then one . as well as for obtaining these'coefficients. which play in each individual case the most important role. Recent investigations have shown that the aerodynamic coefficient depends not only on the shape of the body and the angles. (29) Ma=K = =KConst.c. Each flow. These numbers have the following expressions: Re = o Const. for example.

In those cases when the kinematic coefficient of viscosity. the Reynolds number for air is: Re= V /43 69 000 V. the orientation of model and nature with regard to the flow should be similar. since the power for the creation of the flow would have to be several hundred of thousands hp. the similarity would be destroyed due to the elasticity of the air which strongly affects the flow around bodies already at a velocity similar to that of the sound -. model and nature should have identical Reynold's numbers. at such velocities.

Multiplying the value of the moment M by the corresponding magnitude of the number of modules Z, we obtain the output coefficient o, of the wind energy E = MZ. This coefficient,when plotted on the same graph, gives the characteristic of the power of the wind .engine shown by,a dotted curve(Fig. 62).


The Profiles"Espero'"

and Their Construction.

The profile of the wing plays a most important role in obtaining a high efficiency 'K. of the wind wheel. Numerous profiles of wings are utilized in the practice; among them, an important place is occupied by the "Esperb" profile. This profile was elaborated on atitTs AGI by engineer B. V. Korostelev, who named it "Espero". A series of the eprofileswas tested in the wind tunnel of Ts AGI at velocities of the airstream of approximately 30 m/sec. The angles of attack were taken from a = -14o to a = 900. The dimensions of /140 the handle wer@ 750 x 150 mm. The obtained results were calculated for an infinite span and are presented in the form of graphsin Fig. 63, 64. Fig. 63 gives the value of C as a function of a = -140 up,to a = 100, while Fig. 64 -- for angYes a = 100 to a = 900. On the abscissa, the thicknesses of the profile in fractions pf the chord: are plotted, while on the ordinate -- the coefficients of the lifting force of the wing :c,_= /V . Each thick curve corresponds to a certain angle of attack a in the given period. The angles a are denoted at the end of the corresponding curve. The thinner curves which intersect:ithe -thick 0 ones' 1 represent.' the curve a, p = const. i.e. each curve corresponds to a given p of the series. The value of P is shown in the middle of the curve. The curve Cy and P are constructed for a profile thickness of 6/b = 0.1 to 0.5.

On the abscissa we find the point 6/b = 0.21;startig.from it,' we go along a vertical line until the intersection with the thick/curve denoted -10o and we calculate the magnitude of the ordinate on the left scale; it will be equal to Cy = 0.827.

The magnitude of p is found by interpolating visually the distance of the point (6/b = 0.21; C = 0.827) from the nearest The un= 0. 0 1 and p = 0.015. thin curve known p is found to be equal to p = 0.012.

Using the graph 64, it should be kept in mind that the area circumscribed between the curve a = 10 and a = 280, gives the values of Cy and p rather inaccurately, since this region corresponds to the /142 angles of attack at which the jet is disrupted -and forms vortexes.

Method fdi6Obtaining the Experimental Characteristics,

The experimental characteristics of wind engines are obtained either in the wind tunnel, where an airstream is artificially created, or under natural conditions in a wind .power ... ,laboratory with a tower which is equipped with special instruments. Fig. .68represents the diagram of a wind tunnel with a diameter of 1.6 m £et ipinone ofethe.l b6rato~i ",the'SSR., f ,he The main instrumentsfor testing models of wind engines in the wind tunnel are the following: 1. A micromanometer working with alcohol and with a TsAGIZ; tube for measuring the dynamic pressure of the airstream in the tube; 2. a recorder with a chronograph for recording the revolutions . of the wind whe. i'model; . 3. 4. h.':. a barometer for determining the atmospheric pressure; determining the temperature .during .i.

a thermometer for experiment.

The experimental characteristics of wind engines are obtained according to the inertia method of the Aerodynamic Institute in Kuchino. This method is based on the l1w of inertia of a revolving mass. In order to confer a known angular acceleration to a body revolving abput its own axis, a torque has to act on the body, whfch:"shouild beqequal,,' ih Kagh'i tude to the movement of inertia of the body, in this case the wind wheel,'relative to the axis of its rotati6n multiplied by /145 the angilar acceleration, i.e.: M=A -I

where M -- torque; I -- moment of inertia of the revolving body; dw/dt -- angular acceleration. In such a manner, moment in time and the ing wind wheel, we can caused by the external tunnel. knowing the angular acceleration at each moment of inertia of the model of a revolvdetermine the torque of the models M = Maer, forces,i.e. by the airstream in the wind

Let us take the distance between the ribs equal to a, consequently, the load over this distance is distributed betweent.the two ribs in such a manner that one part of it over distance a/2 corresponds to one rib,while another part over distance a/2 corresponds to the other. The magnitude of the load on the rib is found by multiplying the specific load [see equation (187) and (188)] by the volume AV of the areodynamic load on(,the rib.

If we denote the distance between the center of the wind-driven wheel and the rib by rx, the unknown volume; will be between the limits from rx - a/2 to r x + a/2, i.e.:



Substituting here the value of dV and integrating, we obtain the volume of the load on one rib:

Multiplying the specific load p by this volume, we obtain the load on one rib:

where: a -- distance between the ribs; r x -- distance from the rib to the axis of the wind-driven wheel; bl -- width of the blade at the tip which is turned towards the center of the wind-driven wheel; b 2 -- width of the blade at the external tip; p -- specific load on the blade which widens towards the center of the wind-driven wheel [equation (188)]. Those blades which rise towards the external circumference are used only in the multi-bladed 'wind-driven wheelsof small diameters, and usually have-nno ribs. Example 2. Determine the load on the rib of a wing of previous example 1, if the distance between the ribs and the axis of the winddriven wheel rx = 5 m; the distance between the ribs is a = 0.6 m. r 0 = 1.6 m; R = 8 m; b 1 = 1.8 m; b 2 = 0.8 m (Fig. 173). Solution. The load Jon the wing, according to example 1, is equal to Pmax = 498 kg. Let us find the volume of the load on the wings, according to

In the plains. may give entirely different amounts of energy because they are similar for regions which are situated at a certain distance from one another. The highest wind vc velocities are observed in the central regions of the Central Asian part of the USSR. It is common usage to judge on the possible amount of wind energy which passes in a certain region in the course of the year from the annual average veloci esof the wind. general conclusions can be made about the distribution of the average velocities of the wind.v . These tables are of great practical interest.. In the winter. the maximal wind velocity is7 observed in the summer. not only for wind technology. Comparatively weak wind velocities are observed in the northeastern regions of the European part of the USSR.

Behind the obstacle the velocity of the airstream decreases.

Examining the congruent characteristic of a wind-driven pump unit (Fig. and for another wind velocity: Nx = Chxnx. This indicates t. 218). This is explained by the fact that the power of the wind engine changes proportionally to the cube of the wind velocity. and consequently for a given wind velocity we can write: N = Chn. This curve. passes through the peak of the power curve of the wind engine since it is congruent with the characteristics of the latter. what manner the power of the machine tool should change.

Power of the wind-driven pump unit. The power of the winddriven pump unit required for supplying the daily water expenditure is determined by equation: (304) N60 ; where: Q is the daily water consumption in m 3 ; /414 tp is the number of working hours of the wind engine per day; H is the pressure head in m, which is determined by accounting for the losses in pressure heads; n is the efficiency of the pump. If in addition the unit is supposed to feed water into the stock in order to be consumed on calm days, the power will be expressed according to equations('(302) and (303), by: N =N(1



or accounting for the inconstancy of the consumption:

In addition, the volume of the tank should correspond to Lthe volume of water supplied by the wind-driven installation over and above the daily consumption. If the amount of supplied water is determined by means of equation <(302), then the volume of the tank should equal:
W = Qt. (307)

If the water in the tank mu:st < suffice, also for covering the peak of the graph of water expenditure, according to equation (303), then the volume should equal:

W'---Q+Qt=Q (r


However, it should be stres-sed that a wind-driven pump installation which ensures complete water supply to the consumer on account of the wind energy, is practically unsuitable in regions with long calm periods.


Let us assume that in a certain region where it is planned to set up a wind-driven pump installation, the duration of calm periods average.s 5 days, while the number of windy days between two calm periods is T = 2 days. Determining the required power by means of /415 equations (305) and (306), we obtain:

N,=T(I+ 2+5)=4.,V

In such a manner, for a 5-day calm period which was preceded by two windy days, the power of the wind-driven pump installation should be 3.5 times larger than the power needed to lift the water in the course of one day, and 4 times larger if the peak of the consumption graph has to be covered. Under these conditions, the tanks for storing the water should have the following capacity:

i! w'=Q (t +1=Q (5+1)=6Q
How will the wind-driven installation operate if two windy In this case days will be followed by letus. say two calm days?
the required power will be: .



N, =N (1 +-) = 2N. 2N' (2 2)= 2.5N. The examined examples show that a wind-driven installation calculated for 5 calm days would stand still during' ,',jalm periods which last less than 5 days and would not supply the required water to the consumer if calculated for a smaller number of calm days. Our conclusion is that in regions with low wind velocities, it is not advisable in practice to design wind-driven pump installations toqc.o ver the, water supply of the consumer only on account of the wind energy. 'the wind-driven pump installation can supply the Evidently'l consumer with water only in those regions where the calm periods do not exceed 2-3 days while the windy periods between them lasts no less than 1-2 days. A wind-driven pump installation with a reserve engine which does A suitable renot work with wind energy would be more advisable. rural condiunder installations pump wind-driven serve engine for actuator. a horse-drawn tions is In this case the tariks for storing the water can be much smaller i.e. to contain no more than a one-day supply.



Water Tanks and Water Towers in Wind Pump Installations


Wind pump installations can not operate without a resevoir or a tank for storing water. In the absence of a tank,I the wind engine would have to work only at the time of water consumption i.e. with interruptions;the wind installation would have to stop as soon as the it consumption of the water stops, ":and
would have to start again when the requirement for water is renewed. However, in order to start a wind engine 'wi which is charged by means of a rotary pump, a wind velocity of at least 4 m/sec is required&. while the operation can take place at a velocity of 3 m/sec. The initial loading moment is approximately 3 times larger than the working moment. In such a manner, the intermittent operation of the wind installation as a result of the absence of a tank or a water stock, would be the reason for frequent idle periods in the operation of the wind engine not only when there is no need for water but also when it is needed. Such an installation would be of little use in practice.

The water tank is the main element
in any wind pump installation. The wind Fig. 258: Wind installa- energy can be accumulated in the form of the water stored in the tank on calm tion with a 20 m 3 metalAs a result of this, the idle perdays. lic tank in brick walliods of the wind installation are shortened ing. and at the same time the production becomes cheaper, which pays the expenses for the /417 construction of the water tank. The daily water consumption is characterized by for example, the water conlarge fluctuations as shown in Fig. 256: than between 6 am and higher sumption from 12 md until 2 pm is much period of time can of short a within 10 am.

Designs of Wind Pump Installations.


The mass distribution of wind pump installation in the USSR dates back to. 1936, when about 1300 installations with the wind engines TV-5 and TV-8 were constructed in various regions for the lifting of water. Let us characterized,two of the most common installations in more detail.

The virtue of goatskin windmills is the simplicity of their construction. The building of the millj: with the milling equipment is freely supported by its lower girders on a foundation with a stanchion in the center. Limitation of the height at which the shaft of the wind wheel is situated. The following shortcomings and inconveniences of this construction resultifrom the above facts. Hence the name goatskin windmill. The rotation of the wind wheel is transmitted to the stone mill through a simple transmission. The main drawback in the construction of goatskin windmills is the requirement for rotating the entire building of the windmill together with the equipment during the adjustment of the wings/447 to the wind. the fineiadjustment of the various part of the windmill is disturbed and so are the supportsof the stone mill.

The tent is lighter than the body of the goatskin windmill. therefore less effort is required in rotating the tent during adjustment of the wind wheel to the wind than in the case of the goatskin windmills. The rotation of the stone mill in most tent-shaped windmills is accomplished by a two-stage transmission. the goatskin windmill cannot' be made with i dopen walls which would allow of the wind.. The tower of the tent-shaped windmill permits the lifting of the wind wheel to a large height.1 The diameters of the wind wheels of this mill are therefore made not larger than 15 m. 3...

With regard to the organization of maintenance in wind engines. Undoubtedly. Naturally. such an overload wouldcause breakage of the transmission mechanism. consists in repairing old worn or broken parts and their replacement with new No standard has been yet set out for wind engines which wold parts. Technical maintenance is intended for removing insignificant defects in the equipment and is carried out by the servicing personnel without participation of the maintenance workshop or of the maintenance team. current maintenance plays an important role during the service life of the wind engine as is the case for other machines.a wind velocity of 8 m/sec were to be loaded with the increase in wind velocity above 8 m/sec. Major repairs are performed after a certa!n period of operation of the machine when the latter is in a condition that neither the current nor the medium repairs can remove deficienies due to wearing of the machine. this has its own specific features which result from the conditions of operation of these machines. Periodic preventive maintenance is used wherever the intervals after which a certain repair has to be performed can be established in advance and a definite maintenance plan can be set up. allow usage of a knownsystem of periodic preventive maintenance. this includes removal of the wind whee. in order to prevent accidents caused by excessive wearing of parts. replacement of the rods or of pinions. etc. All the parts and accessories are checked and maintenance of the wind engine involves its'knocking down" to the ground. This maintenance system can be divided into current. when wind engines will be introduced at a large scale. like those ~hich are now used in the tractor and automobile business. then at 16 m/sec it could provide for work with a load tcorresponding to 120 hp at an insignificant increase in the number of revolutions. Medium repairs are distinguished from the current repairs by a more advanced dismantling of the machine. medium and maljor maintenance. 377 . the general method of trouble shooting common for all ma"-P chines are used in the maintenance practice of wind engines. The current repair includes the repairs of parts which are accessible to examination as well as of parts which require immediate repai or replacement without involving complete dismantling of the machine. and therefore. These repairs should remove any dete ted ideficiency as long as this is not reflected in other parts. For example. In such a manner. anyimproved maintenance system will be intro-/534 duced. for the maintenance of the wind engine.

This maintenance includes several preventive measures which make it possible to decrease considerably the wearing of the parts and to reduce to a minumum the various troubles conIn order to performc the maSjor maintenance. the current and the major repairs. the head. examination and current repairs of the wind engine must be performed daily. parts and small maintenance materials.

The the length of the rope for tying up the worker should be 2 m.The barriers are used in order to forbid the access of people to the dangerous sites as well as to protect them from dangerous objects and possible falls from high places. /536 Work at a high level takes place mainly during installation. kerfs as well as rotten logs should not be used. Sound climbing irons must be used in work to be performed on telephone poles and on wooden masts .

It is forbidden to have the cable rotate during the winding of the winch on the drum since lasting twists in the wires cause an additional stress which may cause rupture. Lowering of the flyweight by means of the winch is performed by turning the handles to the side/P opposite to the direction of lifting. one has to take care that it is disposed in even rolls without forming bulges. the strength of the equipment must be checked prior to lifting. 8. 3 80 . In order to prevent rupture of the cable or of the knots in the equipment during the lifting. the stress decreases and approaches zero when the tower assumes a vertical position. It is desirable and preferable to do the lifting in calm if there is a wind. since at. then special hempen mats or at least rags. pieces of boards. its velocity should not exceed 5 m/sec. weather. Subsequently an additional load is placed by having 4-5 people mount on the wind wheel (Fig. since slipping of the cable from the bulge is accompanied by vibrations of the lifted weight with an impact effect on the equipment which may cause breakage of the weakest knot.2. 4. In joining the wooden units of the lifting equipment. should be placed under it. The head of the wind engine is lifted by means of the winch to a height of 10 cm above the supports. This position causes the greatest stress in the equipment. wide washers should be placed under the nut of the bolts. In winter time it is not possible to do the lifting at a temperature below 12-150. 3. Under such a load (about 300 kg). the lifting unit is secured and the wind engine is left in the raised position. The loading winch should have frictional brakes. 338). During the winding of the loading cable on the drum of the winch. It is not allowed to have sharp bends in the steel cable If the at the knot where it is fastened to the lifted flyweight.

Light objects must be placed in the. foreign people and especially children should be prohibited from access to the tower. This requirement can be reduced to the following: a. '. A barrier should be made at the base of the tower which will prevent children from going under the tower to the mobile mechanism. A specially assigned man who is acquainted with the requirements of safety measures should be servicing the wind installation. In order to avoid confusion in the work. for stopping the wind engine. shows that even in the southern regions of the USSR. b. no one should be in the 11. 38 1 . special devices should be used in all cases which are available for this purpose in every wind engine.
