Energy Conversion System
At the core of the Uprise wind machines is the Energy Conversion System (ECS), which represents a new and improved method of efficiently converting wind energy to electricity. The ECS overcomes many constraints in conventional wind energy and replaces failure prone components with proven technologies.
The ECS will be offered independently of the PPC to other OEM’s and as a retrofit option for underperforming wind machines.
- WIND PREDICTION SYSTEM
- STAR+ BLADES
- CONTROLLABLE PITCH ROTOR
- FLUID DRIVE
- SYNCHRONOUS GENERATOR
- PROPRIETARY PROGRAMMING & CONTROL HARDWARE
The Uprise Energy ECS solves one of the wind industries greatest
constraints, RPM. Only now is there a logical solution that allows the rotor
to spin freely, while managing generator RPM precisely. Proprietary Programming will autonomously manage inputs, sensors, and orchestrate mechanical and electrical components to “match load to energy”.
The Uprise Energy ECS Suite of Products is ideally adapted to Original Equipment Manufacturers and Retrofit applications.
Use of the Uprise Energy ECS will eliminate traditional fixed ratio gearboxes, transformers, and inverters. This saves weight, cost, maintenance, and parasitic losses.
Use of the Uprise Energy ECS will enable use of a synchronous AC generator. This reduces weight, cost, and lagging power factor losses.
Use of the Uprise Energy Blades will improve low wind speed energy capture.
The Uprise Energy Blade draws on the previously developed, award winning STAR Blade concept with additional features
- “Sweep” and “twist” to optimize low wind speed efficiency
- Active and Passive pitch contro
- l“Full Foil” combined with uncompromised chord sections
- “Winglets” to prevent vortex drag
- Advanced composite construction to minimize weight and maximize strength
